For ethical and environmental reasons, more and more people refrain from using animal products. And those who incorporate meat into their diet also need herbal ingredients to balance their daily diet. With the vegetable proteins made by the producer Loryma, we can largely replace animal proteins. Wheat proteins are a good source of vegetable protein. Here, for instance, wheat proteins not only help satisfy protein needs; they also have many beneficial health properties. By using wheat proteins, the food industry can enrich its products with vital nutrients such as high-quality amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, highly digestible proteins, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates.
A constantly increasing vegetarian or vegan diet cannot only be healthy, but also provide the answer to the global challenges of food in the future. Animal protein is available only to a certain extent. Conventional animal husbandry is increasingly hampered by high costs and expenses as well as diminishing consumer acceptance. Meat also has negative balance sheets when it comes to resources. The meat production requires a high demand for raw materials and water and also produces a lot of CO2. All this will make meat a luxury product in the future. With an estimated up to ten times higher meat price by the year 2030, meat cannot be a daily or mass-produced food. Textured vegetable proteins made by the producer Loryma provide an economical and sustainable alternative for the production of meat and fish replacers.
