Reducing consumption of animal-based foods is high on the global sustainability agenda and, for many consumers, a shift toward plant-based consumption is becoming the new normal. For these reasons, we are proud to offer a new line of VEGA™ cultures designed specifically for meat alternatives.
While interest in healthier living and promoting a more sustainable future are key motivators for those who practice plant-based eating, we know that alternatives still need to taste great. Freshness, lack of artificial ingredients and affordability are also important factors for flexitarians making decisions about plant-based eating and which products to purchase.
The new VEGA™ SAFEPRO® range can help to keep plant-based meat alternatives safe and fresh, naturally. By leveraging the power of the good bacteria that comprises VEGA™ SAFEPRO® cultures, producers can craft plant-based meat alternatives that stay fresh for longer, improve upon some of the sensory features of their products, and potentially even feature a reduced amount of sodium.
