Plant-based Meat | Bunge Loders Croklaan

Plant-based meat

Whether you’re making a plant-based burger, sausage or breaded nugget, we can help. We have a range of oils, shortenings, shortening flakes, and lecithins to help you meet your sensory needs—i.e . maximizing mouthfeel, texture, aroma, and appearance for the real meat experience. We can also help you improve the nutritional profile of your products and help you meet your sustainability goals.

Delivering superior sensory

Oils and fats play a foundational role in driving great sensory experiences in meat alternatives. They enhance taste, texture, aroma, and the cooking experience. Our optimized portfolio includes oils, shortenings, fractions, and lecithins to help you achieve your application's need for appearance, texture, and flavor.

Understanding consumers' labeling and nutritional preferences

Consumer label preferences are a key consideration for oils and fats used in meat alternative applications. Such preferences include nutrition, free-from, sustainability, and simplicity criteria. Each of these can influence the types of oils and fats used, which in turn can affect a brand’s narrative and positioning. We offer a number of soft seed and tropical oils including soybean, canola, sunflower, palm, coconut, and shea.

Additionally, we offer a wide range of plant protein ingredients from faba, pea, canola, and soy to meet your sensory, nutritional, and sustainability needs across many foods, beverages, and supplements. Learn more about plant-based proteins here.
