Wheat ingredients specialist Loryma has unveiled a meatless chicken breast alternative, designed for use in vegan convenience products.
Made from structured wheat protein, the company’s new vegetable fillet strips aim to deliver authentic taste and mouthfeel.
The chicken breast substitute can be used in refrigerated ready-to-eat applications and has been launched to meet growing demand for plant-based product alternatives.
Textured wheat protein ingredient, Lory Tex Chunks, is used as the basis of the vegan chicken solution and is said to perfectly replicate authentic meat structure.
According to Loryma, the finished product can be used in the same way as real cooked chicken breast and enjoyed both cold and hot without loss of quality.
The company has also developed a wheat-based binding system that allows the consistency and texture of meat alternatives to be individually adjusted.
