Supporting the protein transition

Plant-based perfection!

Solutions for taste, texture and health

To feed some 10 billion people by 2050, we need to switch to more sustainable production of key animal proteins - and we need to scale up plant-based protein alternatives. The challenge for you: creating these plant-based foods while maintaining great taste, texture, and health. Which is where our solutions for plant-based meat and dairy alternatives come in.

DSM research shows that in the years ahead, consumers expect to seek out even more plant-based alternatives1. But meeting this need is a technical challenge that requires deep scientific and application knowhow to create the perfect, succulent veggie burger or smooth, appealing dairy alternative.

You can rely on our application experts to work with you (wherever you are) in tackling the most complex technical, sensory, nutritional, and regulatory challenges – all supported by our science-based ingredients, expertise, and solutions.

Our expertise helps you create a product without the lumps and aftertaste that consumers have come to expect.

Boosting plant-based nutrition

We know that plant-based foods often have lower fat than meat-based equivalents, but did you know that the number of meat alternatives on a nutritional par with their meat counterparts is actually quite small? Allow our Solutions experts to explain (and help you).
