SUPRO® Soy Proteins for Meat, Poultry and Seafood Applications

Solutions that Improve Nutrition, Quality and Economics.

Meat, poultry and seafood manufacturers are constantly challenged with delivering consumers a consistent and high-quality brand experience, while managing raw material cost, variability and availability. Manufacturers are also challenged with responding to changing consumer demand for products with improved nutrition profiles.  SUPRO® Soy Proteins are designed to help food manufacturers meet and address these challenges.

A Broad Portfolio of Protein Solutions

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences offers the widest range of functional and nutritious soy protein ingredients, specifically formulated for meat, poultry and seafood applications. In meat applications, SUPRO® Soy Proteins can improve nutritional value, eating quality and economics. The SUPRO® Product Range for meat applications includes:

  • SUPRO® and SUPRO® EX Isolated Soy Proteins -- 90 percent protein (dry basis) powdered ingredients, specifically designed to deliver the functional performance (i.e., gelling, emulsification, solubility, dispersibility, water and fat-binding and viscosity) required for specific end-use applications.    
  • SUPRO® Systems – functional systems based on isolated soy protein or soy protein concentrate, in powdered and textured forms.   SUPRO®Systems are designed for specific end-use applications, to improve eating quality, cook yields and economics.

SUPRO® Soy Proteins for meat applications are designed with specific target applications in mind. We have products specifically designed to bind water and provide gelling properties in emulsified meat systems.  Additional, we offer other technologies that provide optimal performance as part of a whole muscle injection or marinade, ground meat system, pre-cooked and raw formats, in formed or whole muscle applications. Depending on your goals, processing requirements and cost targets, we can identify a solution that will fit your needs.

Solutions That Improve Meat Economics

SUPRO® Soy Proteins improve the economics of meat products by replacing more expensive meat, improving meat yields and processing efficiencies, and upgrading the quality of low-cost meats to add value and drive consistency. Those improvements drive top-line and bottom-line value for our customers and help them deliver a more consistent and high-quality brand experience to their consumers.

Solutions That Improve Nutrition

SUPRO® Soy Proteins are high-quality proteins, with a Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score of 1.0, equivalent to dairy and egg proteins, and higher in quality than many meat and poultry products. In meat applications, SUPRO® Soy Proteins can be incorporated to improve the nutritional profile, contributing protein, lowering fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calorie content, while providing consumers a great eating experience.

Solutions That Improve Eating Quality

In meat applications, the ultimate goal in using SUPRO® Soy Proteins is to provide the consumer with a great-tasting, positive eating experience, while managing economics. Our solutions impact the eating experience in many ways:

  • Improves slice-ability and microwave-ability
  • Binds water to improve succulence and juiciness
  • Reduces purge
  • Provides meat-like chew, texture and fibrosity
  • Delivers a clean, neutral flavor profile

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences provides 100s of different soy proteins, including powdered isolate and concentrates, and textured concentrates and systems, specifically designed for meat applications. For the best recommendation for your specific application, contact us direct.
