Alternative proteins are experiencing significant growth with even the meat, dairy industry jumping into the bandwagon.

 

But as companies like Tyson Food, Fonterra make investments into the alternative protein space, they recognize the reality is that overtime culinary expertise, the ability to make great-tasting food, matters more than science.

 

Consumers are looking for ingredients with great texture and taste that meat brings but also with no compromise.

 

Which plant protein has those functionalities ? Can you replace the meat with  mushrooms that also have a meat-like texture, moisture retention properties and an umami taste ?

 

While many restaurant chains have added plant-based burgers to their menus, the plant protein sources have expanded beyond the use of soy. How can the Horeca sector and the retail chains drive the growth of alternative proteins ?

 

With plant protein on the rise, Europe’s starch industry can indeed play an important role to fill the protein gap. More innovations are coming on stream with ancient grains, beans, nuts/seeds, peas delivering not only protein but also the necessary textures.

 

How do you pick the right protein ingredient for meat alternatives ?

 

With plant protein dominating today’s food conversation, dairy protein industry has joined forces to communicate the nutritional superiority and health benefits of whey and milk- based proteins.

 

What is the market size for dairy proteins in sports nutrition, infant formula and clinical nutrition  ?

 

It is much more challenging to make a product with only plant-based proteins. The inclusion of dairy improves taste, appearance and even mouthfeel.

“Dairy proteins don’t have the flavor challenges plant proteins have, and from a nutritional standpoint, dairy will always be better" says Kimberlee Burrington, dairy ingredient applications coordinator, Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin.

 

Another platform that is driving interest among investors ,offering clear advantages such as less use of animal products, feed and less emissions is fermentation based alternative protein. Producing proteins from genetically engineered microbes through fermentation is deserving attention and has attracted high profile investors like Bill Gates, Louis Dreyfuss, Fonterra.

 

Can microbial fermentation to secrete protein revolutionize the food space ? How do you scale up fermentation facilities cost effectively ?

 

In recent years, cellular agriculture has moved from just a few curious academics to numerous companies seeking to challenge the status quo in the food industry. How does lab grown meat technology stack up ?

Why Copenhagen ? 

 

The city of Copenhagen has adopted an overall goal of becoming CO2-neutral by 2025 and food is part of the plan. Consumption patterns and attitudes are shifting in the Nordic area towards a more plant-based diet. In 2018, a survey from Ernst & Young found that 24 percent of Nordic consumers predict they will eat less meat in the next five years, primarily due to health and environmental reasons, and 34 percent of the Nordic consumers indicated that they would eat more vegetarian food.

 

Food Protein EUROPE aptly placed in Copenhagen has lined up a Key Authoritative panel to share on the latest developments with proteins and the disruptive solutions offered by meat alternatives.

EU proposes Ban on ‘Burger’, ‘Sausage’ Labels on Vegan and Vegetarian Food

Posted on : 17 Jun, 2019

 
European Union is proposing a prohibition on the use of labels such as sausage or burger in vegan or vegetarian food. The argument is that these words are traditionally used for animal-based foodstuffs and cannot be used on plant based products.
 
According to the new proposal vegan or vegetarian food producers cannot use words such as ‘sausage’ or ‘milk alternative’ in naming their products. Some say that it could also mean vegan and vegetarian food cannot be labelled as ‘veggie burgers’ and ‘seitan steaks’.
 
Many groups in EU such as ProVeg are challenging the proposal already as they see it as ‘disadvantaging’ vegan and vegetarian food manufacturers, as well as consumers who prefer non-meat and non-dairy alternatives. They also claim that inclusion of burger or sausage words in a vegetarian product is critical in highlighting  the flavour or texture of certain products.
 
Although still at the proposal stage and not a law yet, it can impact plant based products that are becoming more popular in the EU, as many consumers want alternatives to meat based products. As the proposal gets ratified at a plenary meeting of the European Parliament this year, ProVeg, the European Vegetarian Union and the Good Food Institute Europe are looking at a viable solution that doesn’t interfere with the interests of both consumers and producers, but supports plant-based foods as sustainable and fair alternatives.
