According to a recent study by FMCG Gurus, 57% of consumers say they will increase their consumption of plant-based products following the Covid-19 pandemic.
There are two main reasons for this. One is the growing appeal of products that are perceived to be natural, healthy and sustainable – for both humans and the planet. The other is the increasingly adventurous nature of consumers who want to try something new.
As dairy and plant-based manufacturers worldwide are rushing to capitalise on this opportunity, there is one major challenge they face, however: recent research indicates that dairy alternatives leave ‘nutritional value gaps’ – especially in non-soy varieties like almond and oat-based drinks.
In fact, some 44% of Europeans feel that plant-based dairy drinks are less nutritious than their dairy counterparts.
So how can manufacturers of these products fill these gaps and meet growing demand? One promising solution is an innovation called CanolaPRO® from DSM.
CanolaPRO® is a new, highly soluble and nutritional protein isolate, derived from non-GMO canola (rapeseed). It delivers excellent nutritional quality, with a minimum protein level of 90%.
For dairy alternatives, CanolaPRO® can be used to fortify dairy-free products or as a single protein source. It contains all the essential amino acids, equivalent to milk proteins, while delivering excellent sensory properties.
CanolaPRO® will be commercially available in 2022.
Ultimately, CanolaPRO® has the potential to meet the growing demand for protein without the need for more arable land. At DSM, our purpose is to create brighter lives for all. We believe CanolaPRO® has the potential to deliver it.
Join Barbara Jacobs, application manager and Ben Rutten, business manager for milk drinks at DSM Food Specialties, who will provide an introduction to CanolaPRO®.
Register for the webinar today to learn how to differentiate your products with this non-GMO, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and solvent-free plant-based protein.
