Think beyond mimicking – a culinary approach
While our skills, portfolio and knowledge are perfectly suited to help our customers create incredible plant-based meat, dairy and fish alternatives, there is an enormous opportunity to create plant-based, centre of plate foods that don’t aim to mimic a meat or dairy product. We use a culinary approach combined with deep innovation to create food concepts that delight consumers without mimicking.
Recently at the Future Food-Tech Alternative Proteins event, two of our experts gave insights on our culinary thinking and a new novel example of how to bring this centre of plate concept to life.
How to succeed in the plant-based space - putting culinary excellence at the forefront of innovation
A Givaudan webcast in collaboration with Food Matters Live 2020
Flexitarians, reducetarians and plant-forward trends are driving changes in taste, culinary traditions and food consumption habits. Chefs, food service and retail businesses are rethinking their menus, centre of plate and products. As a result, neither protein nor centre of plate will ever be the same!
Today, consumers expect alternative protein products to taste great and deliver on a number of other factors. Some are looking for authentic meatiness, fattiness and juiciness, as well as a texture that resembles meat; others are seeking an exciting taste and culinary experience.
Making an alternative protein product that exceeds consumer demands means understanding taste, texture, mouthfeel, colour, aroma and other product attributes. Givaudan can help you on your journey to develop plant-based products that consumers will love. With an expert panel of chefs, scientists, and commercial peers this webcast takes a deep dive into the role of culinary in the alternative-protein movement.
