Product base protein

Your plant-based product is made from various ingredients. What is its main protein-based ingredient; soy, wheat gluten, pea, or mycoprotein? If there is a mixture, select the predominant one.

  • Soy

  • Wheat Gluten

  • Pea

  • Myco Protein

Step 2: Compare your base protein

Compare the vitamin and mineral content of your plant-based alternative with their analogue. In the next steps, we will provide options for closing the nutritional gaps and, at the same time, taking advantage of the naturally occurring vitamins and minerals of your plant-based alternative*.

Vitamin B2


Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is a water-soluble B vitamin. This vitamin is essential for the energy production in the body. Foods rich in vitamin B2 are animal-based sources, such as salmon, beef, milk, eggs, and it can be found in some green vegetables. DSM produces a comprehensive portfolio of vitamin B2 forms to optimally support your plant-based alternative!

Vitamin B3


Vitamin B3, also called niacin, is one of the water-soluble B vitamins. A sufficient intake of vitamin B3 is important because it is needed for producing energy in the body and for a well-functioning nervous system. Liver, poultry, lean meats, and fish are very good sources of vitamin B3. DSM provides reliable and high-quality forms of vitamin B3 to optimally support your plant-based alternative!

Vitamin B5


Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, is essential to all forms of life. An adequate supply of vitamin B5 is important because it is needed for the body's energy supply (and building new tissues), by breaking down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Liver and kidney, fish, shellfish, and chicken are good sources of vitamin B5. Therefore, DSM offers vitamin B5 for a wide range of applications to optimally support your plant-based alternative!

Vitamin B6


Vitamin B6, a water-soluble vitamin, is essential as it helps the body convert food into glucose, which is used to produce energy. Vitamin B6 also contributes to hormonal activity, red blood cell production, and a well-functioning immune system and nervous system. Foods that are relatively rich in vitamin B6 include beef, chicken, turkey, and salmon. That is why DSM offers vitamin B6 fortification, which is a perfect match for your plant-based alternative!

Vitamin B12


Vitamin B12, also called cobalamin, is present in animal products such as meat, poultry, fish (including shellfish), mussels, and to a lesser extent milk, but it is not generally present in plant products. A sufficient intake of vitamin B12 is essential for helping the body convert carbohydrates to simple sugars, such as glucose, which is used to produce energy. Vitamin B12 also helps to maintain healthy nerve cells and to create red blood cells. Vegetarians and vegans are at risk of inadequate vitamin B12 intake. That is why DSM offers vitamin B12 fortification, which is a perfect match for your plant-based alternative!

Vitamin D


Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that supports the immune system. Vitamin D also contributes to bone and teeth health, muscle strength and helps reduce the risk of falling in the elderly. This nutrient can be synthesized in the skin upon exposure to sunlight. When this is insufficient, adequate intake of vitamin D from the diet is essential for health. However, vitamin D is found naturally in very few foods, including some fatty fish (mackerel, salmon, and sardines). For this reason, vegetarians and vegans may be at risk of insufficient vitamin D intake. That is why DSM offers vitamin D fortification, which is a perfect match for your plant-based alternative!

Iron



In humans, iron is an essential component of hundreds of proteins and enzymes. Much of the iron in the body is attached to a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to all of the tissues. When people think of the health benefits of iron, steak, liver and other meats are the foods that spring to mind. Plant-based foods such as legumes and dark leafy green vegetables are all sources of non-heme iron. However, non-heme iron isn’t as easily absorbed and so must be consumed in much larger amounts for those on a plant-based diet. DSM offers iron for a wide range of applications to optimally support your plant-based alternative!

Iodine


Iodine is a trace element that is important for hormones made in the thyroid gland. These hormones are necessary for adequate growth and a well-functioning nervous system. Iodine naturally occurs in sea fish, eggs, milk products, seaweed and some meat products. A vegetarian and particularly vegan diet may be of concern for possible shortage of iodine as animal-derived foods are the richest sources of this micronutrient. That is why DSM offers iodine fortification, which is a perfect match for your plant-based alternative!

Selenium


Selenium is a trace element that contributes to normal immune function. Furthermore, selenium is important for reproduction, thyroid gland function, DNA production, and protecting red blood cells from damage. As animal-based foods such as meat and fish are very rich in selenium, people who have a predominantly plant-based diet can be at risk of inadequate selenium intake. That is why DSM offers selenium fortification, which is a perfect match for your plant-based alternative!

Zinc


Zinc is the second most common trace mineral in the body after iron and is present in every living cell. It is essential for everyday functions within the body, including wound healing and immunity. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA. Similar to iron, the body can struggle to absorb plant-based sources of zinc and so it’s a good idea for people following the diet to consume higher levels of zinc. DSM offers zinc for a wide range of applications to optimally support your plant-based alternative!
