Vegetarian or vegan alternatives to animal products can no longer be overlooked on supermarket shelves. In Germany, around seven million people already eat a vegetarian diet, more than one percent of the population even lives vegan, and more and more consumers are calling themselves flexitarians. However, the desire of many people for plant-based alternatives that have a meat-like structure, natural ingredients and, above all, convincing taste, poses challenges for the food industry. Taiyo is an expert in functional ingredients and supplies Vegemeat, a plant-based meat alternative made from pea protein. The granules are 100 percent natural, free of additives and preservatives, and also allergen-free: perfect for soups, bolognese, lasagnas and the like.
