Plant-Based Under The Microscope

March 12, 2024

Join dsm-firmenich at Food Navigator’s digital event – day 1: Plant-Based Under The Microscope

Plant-based foods have surged in popularity in recent years, with many consumers eager to try vegan alternatives. However, while plant-based options offer a sustainable alternative to animal products, they often lack essential nutrients. For example, a recent study in the Netherlands found that only 3 out of 22 fish alternatives met the nutritional value of real fish.1

Julia Besselink (Nutritionist Meat and Fish Alternatives) and Emmy Nitert van Schijndel (New Business Development Manager Meat and Fish Alternatives) – both from dsm-firmenich - will present and join a panel discussion on how to improve nutrient gaps in plant-based foods. Discover how our solutions can fortify plant-based foods and how to communicate their benefits to consumers. Learn from experts in the field and create healthier, more sustainable plant-based options.

Presentation: 12 March, 15:20 – 15:40 CET

Fill the Nutrient Gap and Beyond: Fortifying Plant-Based Products to Create More Nutritious Foods
By Julia Besselink, Nutritionist Meat and Fish Alternatives, dsm-firmenich

Panel discussion: 12 March, 15:40 - 16:30 CET

Theme: Better-for-you alternatives to meat & dairy
With Emmy Nitert van Schijndel, Business Development Manager Meat and Fish Alternatives, dsm-firmenich, and delegates from Revo Foods, Rude Health and Heura Foods.

VertisTM plant proteins

Our range of natural and high-quality Vertis™ plant proteins are free of major allergens, and include isolates, concentrates, blends and textured vegetable proteins (TVP). Our TVPs are available in different sizes and formats – ideal for boosting functional qualities in a wide range of meat & fish alternative applications.


Dairy alternatives

Our plant-based portfolio fine-tunes taste and texture in oat-based drinks, coffee complements, and ready-to-mix/ready-to-drink beverages. We bridge the nutrition gap between alternative and traditional dairy with high-quality vitamins, sustainable Omega-3, Vertis™ plant proteins, and probiotics. Our solutions are sustainable and profitable, such as Delvo®Plant Go, saving production time, energy, and water without affecting the final application's taste or texture.

Meat and fish alternatives

At dsm-firmenich we offer a comprehensive family of ingredients and solutions for meat and fish alternative products that improve taste, texture, and health (for both people and planet). From flavors and yeast extracts like Maxavor®, to gellan gum and Vertis™ plant proteins, to algal lipids, vitamins and customized nutritional premixes – we help create plant-based products that are delicious, nutritious and sustainable.

 Join us at 15:00 CET on March 12, 2024.
