Food Technologist in Plant-based Industry

Structured vegetable fats are a popular ingredient in plant-based meat formulations, thanks to their ability to improve texture, reduce fat content, and enhance the overall nutritional profile of the final product. But how do food technologists make structured vegetable fats useful for incorporation into plant-based meats? Let’s take a closer look.

You can make a structured vegetable fat that can fit exactly into your unique plant-based meat recipe by using our BDF Binder 1.0.

One of the key benefits of structured vegetable fats is their ability to reduce the fat content of plant-based meats while still maintaining the desired texture and mouthfeel. This is achieved by substituting animal (saturated) fat for vegetable (unsaturated) fat, which is both healthier and more sustainable. Additionally, structured fats allow the addition of a high proportion of water, reducing the calorie intake and manufacturing cost of the final product.

Food technologists can use structured vegetable fats with any kind of vegetable oil with BDF Binder (alginates), giving them a wide range of options when formulating plant-based meats. By carefully selecting the right combination of oils and interesterification conditions, they can create structured fats with the desired melting point, texture, and other properties.
