Meat Alternatives


Plant-based protein options with the taste and texture of real meat


Meat alternatives are a major part of the booming health-based market.

More and more consumers are adopting ‘flexitarian’ lifestyles and view meat alternatives as better for their health and the environment. The growing variety of meat alternatives in the market today is also drawing more consumers to the category.

Our ingredients enable you to develop a huge range of meatless options:

  • RESPONSE® Textured Soy Protein Concentrates: Ground-style applications such as burgers, nuggets, sausages, and patties.
  • SUPRO® MAX Structured Vegetable Proteins: Whole muscle-style applications such as meat-like chunks, shreds, and strips.
  • SUPRO® Isolated Soy Proteins: High-protein powdered products that improve the eating experience of meat-free applications.
  • ALPHA® Functional Soy Protein Concentrates: Emulsified, for applications such as deli meats and slices.

How We Help

Plant Based

Our soy protein ingredients are derived from a reliable and sustainable raw material—the soybean. Soy protein is the most widely used source of plant protein in the food industry and is among the most nutritious, versatile, economical and reliable sources of protein for food and beverage innovation.


Better Nutrition

Soy protein is a high-quality, plant-based protein with proven health benefits. Our soy protein solutions support the development of high-protein products from sports nutrition and weight management to general health & wellness, and help meet the protein needs of growing children, teens, pregnant and lactating women, health enthusiasts and active older individuals.



Soybean cultivation is highly efficient and producing soy protein requires far less land, energy and water than animal-based proteins. According to a third-party validated Life Cycle Assessment, our soybean isolate has a carbon footprint that’s up to 80 times lower than dairy and meat proteins.

Our soy protein solutions support at least six of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
