Take plant-based dairy to the next level

Plant-based dairy alternatives keep on growing, driven by strong consumer demand for healthful and sustainable food.

For food formulators seeking to appeal to vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian tastes, the challenge is making plant-based yogurt, milk, and cheese that is rich and creamy, with the most appealing dairy-like texture, possible. And this requires a deep understanding of:

  • Product attributes that drive consumer preferences
  • Ingredient functionalities and processing conditions
