Taste the trends

A recent trend in food innovation is hybridised products, where animal-derived and plant-derived ingredients merge to form a new hybrid. A recent study1 convincingly demonstrates that the health benefits associated with intake of dietary fibres are obtained when those fibres are incorporated into meat products. This offers a favourable potential for developing health-promoting products without cutting back on meat. Read on and find more inspiration on how you can make meat products even more attractive for the health-conscious consumer.

At our Tasting Bar at IFFA 2019 we served a number of applications that match the top 5 global consumer trends on meat products - click below and find out how you can tap into these opportunities.

The Essentia range of natural, meat-based ingredients holds some of the solutions towards healthier meat products.
