As a meat, poultry or seafood manufacturer, you’re constantly challenged to create high quality products that meet consumer demand for more nutritious products—all while managing the cost, supply and variability of your raw materials.
Our soy protein ingredients have been designed to help you overcome these challenges by improving the economics of meat formulations and enabling excellent eating quality.
There’s a Nutrition & Biosciences soy protein solution for just about any meat application you can imagine.
RESPONSE® Textured Soy Protein Concentrates reproduce the texture and appearance of meat fibers, and can be used to extend or replace meat or fish. They’re available in a variety of formats and sizes—and you can easily integrate them into standard meat processing methods.
Ground meats such as:
SUPRO® MAX Structured Vegetable Proteins contain a unique combination of soy protein and other ingredients that deliver meat-like fibrosity and texture when combined with meat or poultry, or used in meat-free applications.
SUPRO® MAX Structured Vegetable Proteins are extremely flexible. You can use them to produce delicious meat-free alternatives or to improve lower cost meats to give consumers high quality, affordable food.
Meats and meat-free food, including:
The SUPRO® Product Range consists of a broad portfolio of protein solutions that improve the nutritional value, taste and economics of a wide range of meat applications.
The range includes:
SUPRO® products are specifically designed to bind water and provide gelling properties in emulsified meat systems. Additionally, some products provide optimal performance as part of a:
– whole muscle injection or marinade
– ground meat system
– pre-cooked or raw format
– formed or whole muscle application.
Whatever your goals, processing requirements and cost target, there’s a SUPRO® solution for your specific needs.
ALPHA® Functional Soy Protein Concentrates are optimized for cost efficiency, and bind fat and water better than other soy protein concentrates.
Some varieties of ALPHA® Functional Soy Protein Concentrates for the US market are fortified with vitamins and minerals, in accordance with USDA child nutrition guidelines.
PROCON® Soy Protein Concentrates are powdered products (minimum 69% protein dry basis) for protein enhancement. They also aid in forming meat products, reducing water loss, and increasing the viscosity of a mix.
The range works well in applications where water absorption is key but high gelation and fat emulsification aren’t required.
PROPLUS® Vegetable Protein Products are soy protein isolates that have been specially fortified to meet the nutritional requirements of the US National School Lunch Program.
They provide texture and emulsion stability in a variety of meat systems, and bind moisture in whole muscle and ground applications to help products stay flavorful and juicy.
PROPLUS® Vegetable Protein Products enable you to increase yields, provide high-quality protein, and reduce fat and calories. Food created with PROPLUS® retains its quality, even in school food service environments where reheating and long hold times are common.
PROPLUS® Products are used in Alternative Protein Products (APP) for the:
Nutrition & Biosciences Protein Solutions are available as standard or ‘identity preserved non-genetically modified’ (IP non-GM) varieties.
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.
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.
