From its recently established plant-based competence centre, Hydrosol, our partner in plant-based development, has added to its ever expanding portfolio with its VEGAN SALAMI STICK – a product that speaks to two increasingly important trends in the food market: snacking and plant based consumption.
This tasty vegan snack is made using Hydrosol’s exclusive vegan stabilising system HydroTOP VEGAN SF 31 – based on functional vegetable proteins and hydrocolloids. It can be combined in recipes with texturised pea proteins (Stabiprot PeaTex 70 R) to achieve synergistic effects. The result is a vegan salami stick with a firm texture and bite that rivals the traditional meat equivalent.
When it comes to achieving outstanding texture in plant-based foods, Hydrosol is already there with its plant based patty made from its HydroTOP Vegan Patty Range. This was one of the meat alternative products that Andina Ingham sampled at Food Matters Live 2019 and the positive reaction from visitors was amazing! They loved the juicy texture, the authentic bite and mouthfeel. It’s not surprising that this vegan texturising system can now be found in many well-known vegan burger brands!
