And as the branding has it, the ‘PLANT-TEX’  meat alternative systems are free from any animal-products alongside being allergy-free and sans cholesterol.

Enhancing Everyway

The company’s GRINDSTED® PLANT-TEX MA1201 is meant to enhance the taste, texture, juiciness, umami flavor, and increase the protein content in meatballs and burger patties. In the same way, the PLANT-TEX MA1301, which is meant for cooked sausages will ensure superior shape retention, and notably, give the ‘snappy’ bite of cooked sausages, irrespective of the same is cooked or cold. Last, but certainly not the least, the PLANT-TEX MA1110, which is meant for cold cuts will help vegan deli ham with ‘authentic taste and texture,’ according to the company in its press release.

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences’ Regional Product Manager Europe, Elisa Vimercati stated that the three DuPoint systems will ‘definitely’ help customers ‘meet and exceed’ the quality and taste expectations. Vimercati added- “We are proud to push the boundaries for high-quality, plant-based solutions for meat alternatives. PLANT-TEX delivers best-in-class results for taste and texture.”

DuPont’s Global Business Development Manager, Linda Yvonne Friis told that their systems are easy to use, can be directly put into the mix and would make both the production and formulating process easier.
