Ingredient giant DuPont recently developed a new egg white replacement system for plant-based meat alternatives. The Grindsted Plant-Tex Solution has characteristics similar to egg whites and can be added directly into the mix during the production of vegan meats such as burgers, sausages, and cold cuts. “We are proud to push the boundaries for high-quality, plant-based solutions for meat alternatives,” Elisa Vimercati, Regional Product Manager, Europe, DuPont, told media outlet Global Meat News. “Plant-Tex delivers best-in-class results for taste and texture. It will definitely help customers to meet and exceed end-customer expectations for quality and taste.” The Plant-Tex system is currently available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and DuPont plans to make it available worldwide in 2020. Earlier this year, the company promoted its vegan textured soy protein product at a trade show for the meat and dairy industry in Mexico.
