TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

Our product is an emulsion of healthy vegetable oil and water, stabilized with vegan ingredients (plant, algae, and/or microbial ingredients) in a semi-solid state which is used as a replacement for the non-healthy and non-sustainable fatty components of food.  

  • Meat-Based: Replacement of 10-20% saturated animal fat to produce healthier blends. 
  • Plant-Based: Total upstanding replacement of highly saturated and non-sustainable coconut oil, shea butter and palm oil. 
  • Alternative-Dairy: Producing healthier cheeses, yoghurts and ice-creams under the same concept as Plant-Based 

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

Different range in hardness for different applications: from a total integration with the matrix to a clear appearance of visible fat particles. 

  • Melting point: +100°C. Supporting pasteurization and cooking procedures. 
  • Storage: Refrigerated (4-8 ºC).
  • Frozen format under development. 

Integration inclusion in different matrixes (meat or plant-based products) by gentle mixing, recommended temperature during grinding and mixing 4-10°C. For harder textures or any special need including tailored vegan aromas and clean label products, additional customized formulations for each process and product are also available
