Meat replacements are products designed to replace animal protein.
Various ingredients are integrated into what is usually a soy base, including flours made from pulses or oilseeds, thereby adding nutritional value and further characterizing the product.
The problems that arise from the use of these raw materials are mainly linked to flavour and stability. In particular, products such as oilseeds must be able to maintain their sensory qualities even after being frozen.
CerealVeneta makes use of hot and cold treatments, calibrated to each ingredient, which make it possible to stabilize the semi-finished product and improve the conservation of its aromas and flavours. In addition, such treatments can boost the sensory qualities of the raw materials, further characterizing the finished product.
