Helping food manufacturers unlock the true potential of plant-based meat products, Equinom breeds non-GMO seeds for source ingredients with specific protein composition, starch, fibers and sugars.
TORONTO (PRWEB) August 28, 2020
Good for our health, good for the planet, and necessary for our future, meat alternatives are no longer a niche commodity with limited shelf space. With a current market worth of $4 Billion, food companies across the globe are rising to the opportunity of this growing trend.
The skyrocketing demand for plant-based protein has led to incredible innovations in this sector, but in a meat lovers’ world, lack of similarity to traditional meat remains a barrier. Consumers who have choices desire the indulgent sensory experience of delicious, appetizing foods and when it comes to plant-based protein, taste and texture is prime. Addressing these key barriers through science and innovation is seed-breeding specialist, Equinom.
Helping food manufacturers unlock the true potential of plant-based meat products, Equinom breeds non-GMO seeds for source ingredients with specific protein composition, starch, fibers and sugars. Equinom has identified that different protein compositions and different starches (naturally present in legumes) provide different textures. These textures can suit sausage, patties and other meatless products. With this intelligence, Equinom is exploring the entire legumes family with the focus on soybean and pea.
Equinom’s food seeds carry a host of desirable traits – exceptional characteristics, superior nutritional profiles and enhanced organoleptic properties – and these varieties can be tailored for specific food applications. Equinom is the only legume breeder that designs seeds exclusively for the food industry, offering endless ingredient possibilities to feed the explosive demand for plant-based products.
