Meat & Fish Alternatives

Taste, texture and health Enjoy it all

Meatless magnificence!

People increasingly want their meat and fish alternative products to have convincing taste and texture, while also being nutritious and having a reduced carbon footprint. But plants just don’t taste like meat or fish (or have the same nutritional benefits) - unless you work with the DSM team.

With our in-depth market and consumer understanding, we support you with everything from product development and nutritional science, to advice on regulations and front-of-pack claims.

Combined with our broad portfolio, science-enabled solutions and molecular expertise, we work with you to create tasty, nutritious and sustainable signature products. For example, Maxavor® is our range of taste solutions that deliver convincing meat and fish flavor; while our hydrocolloids add juiciness and mouthfeel, without the fat. And when it comes to adding a nutrition boost look no further than CanolaPRO®: our nutritious, sustainable plant-derived protein isolate with excellent functional properties.

Together, we’ll help you create the best possible sustainable meat and fish alternatives without having to choose between taste, texture and health. You can enjoy it all.
