Meet the 2019 winners

Cleaning up Plant-based Meat Alternatives using Citri-Fi® Natural Citrus Fiber.

Citri-Fi® natural citrus fiber emulsion gel system simulates the functionality of methyl cellulose in meat alternatives to better target the taste and texture of animal meat. Citri-Fi is used in an emulsion gel to control water and oil release during cooking to provide juiciness and improved mouthfeel in a vegan patty. Food products can be made with a more natural ingredient profile as an option to plant-based consumers who are also concerned about clean label. Using Citri-Fi also permits higher proportions of healthier liquid oils to be used instead of solid fats.
