Loryma has developed a new application concept for consumers who want to prepare their own plant-based meat alternatives at home.
The company has designed vegan premixes that can be used – with the addition of water – to make products including plant-based burger patties, breaded cutlets and nuggets. Various wheat-based ingredients from Loryma’s portfolio work together to ensure “optimal texture, appearance and binding”.
According to Loryma, the vegan solutions have a short list of ingredients without E-numbers and a protein content comparable to meat.
The dry products have a longer shelf life than ready-to-use meat alternatives from the chilled aisle, and take up less space in transit, therefore helping to reduce food waste and transport emissions.
“Our do-it-yourself solution addresses a target group that is keen on creative cooking and wants to know all about the ingredients involved,” said Henrik Hetzer, managing director of Loryma.
“With our product, we help manufacturers meet the high demands of conscious consumers who want [a] clean label, optimised nutritional values, along with creative freedom in preparation and, of course, a convincing mouthfeel.”
