Vegetarian future foods: healthy & sustainable food solutions
With vegetarianism and veganism on the rise, we’re capitalising on our strong background and expertise in ingredients, taste and functionality to meet this demand. Solina invests significantly in developing vegetarian food products and alternative sources of protein for bespoke plant-based solutions that don’t compromise on taste and texture.
Our butchers’ protein expertise
Our in-depth knowledge of meat-based proteins allow us to master the technology of developing alternative proteins.
Solina is famed for its functional, taste and visual, and nutritional expertise, thanks to the passion for great food that its chefs, butchers, flavourists, and food engineers bring to their work.
By applying this know-how to vegetarian applications, we can replicate the same sensory experiences that animal proteins provide. Our unique combination of skillsets means that unlike others in the Textured Vegetable Proteins (TVP) market, we offer solutions with mouthfeel, colour, juiciness, and chewiness that even the most avid meat-eaters will enjoy.
Innovating with “new” protein foods
Being vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian is entering the mainstream, and increasing the number of people wanting to reduce their meat consumption. As ever, Solina takes a proactive approach and helps its clients stay ahead of the curve.
We set up Future Food as a group-wide programme to rethink food. With concepts for the Food Service and Butchery sectors, our plant-derived applications span a wide portfolio:
- Dairy-based substrates
- Traditional dry TVP
- Vegan meat substitutes using wet extrusion techniques or seitan
