Meat and dairy products are the benchmarks when it comes to nutrients. Substitutes today already offer great taste and texture, but the lack of Vitamins, Amino acids or Calcium will always be an issue. We offer custom fortification solutions, developed for your application and for the taste and demands of your local markets. Make use of fortification expertise we gained in the field of Infant Nutrition, the most demanding fortification segment!

Fortification & Protection
Vitamin B12, Iron, Amino acids, and other nutrients can and should be added to vegan meat substitutes to prevent malnutrition, which not every Vegan is aware of. Sometimes this fortification is already compulsory. To mimic the look of fresh ground beef, a nice pink color needs to be maintained over the shelf life. Our antioxidant systems can provide the desired color protection.
In Canada, for instance, “simulated meat products” have to be fortified with Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Pyridoxine (B6), D-pantothenic acid, Folic acid (B9), Vitamin B12, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Copper and Amino Acids like Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine.
Fortified vegetable-based dairy alternatives
Vegetable-based alternatives to milk, yogurt, and cheese are becoming increasingly popular, but they lack Calcium, Vitamins like Vitamin D, B12, and other nutrients. We formulate and produce fortification solutions for your project and market, suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Plant-based "fish" with vegetarian Omega 3
Almost every kind of meat has been successfully imitated with vegan ingredients, but the breakthrough with fish analogs has yet to come. One vital element can be solved with us: Adding Omega 3 from algae makes the nutritional values as compelling as in real fish.
Perfect margarine, baking fats and cooking oils
Vegan products need a non-dairy alternative for animal-derived fats. From cheese alternative to pastry, we formulate and produce vegetable oils and fat solutions that are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
