The current market situation also has a significant impact on product developments. Plant-based food, for example, is a consumer trend that is currently experiencing a steep upward trend. There is a great demand, not only from vegetarians, but also from consumers who would like to reduce or substitute their meat consumption for health reasons or because of ethical or environmental concerns. Therefore, not only veggie but also hybrid products are becoming increasingly popular. Today’s consumer is interested in both traditional and modern foods.
A vegan bratwurst, for example, is both classic and innovative. To ensure that it can be authentically prepared in the pan or on the grill, we recommend using textured wheat protein such as Lory® Tex Granules. With a variety of particle sizes and a matching veggie bratwurst seasoning, a wide variety of products can be produced, ranging from a curry sausage, to a fine Nuremberg sausage, or right up to a coarse grilled sausage.
