DuPont drives solutions for plant-based food and beverages

With the launch of a new brand designed for co-creation of plant-based beverages, dairy alternatives, meat, fish and seafood, DuPont is looking to enable the transformation of global eating habits.

Danisco Planit marks the latest evolution in DuPont’s plant-based ingredient portfolio – a  range of ingredients and application expertise for food and beverages made with a ‘planet forward,’ sustainable approach.

With the new Danisco Planit range, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) offers food and beverage manufacturers a selection of ingredients for plant-based product development in the industry, supported by application knowledge and insights to design products for the future.

Plant-in-it is key
In plant-based products, as in all food categories, taste and texture are imperative. However, in plant-based there are a variety of protein sources, and when combined with consumer requirements for health and nutrition, designing and formulating new formats that are top-performing in all sensory dimensions is a challenge. A great tasting product isn’t just about flavor, but the interactivity among sight, smell, touch and sound. Sensory expertise is at the center of new product development for plant-based food and beverages.

Danisco Planit has been launched globally and covers services, expertise, and an ingredient portfolio for plant-based food and beverages: plant proteins, hydrocolloids, cultures, probiotics, fibers, food protection, antioxidants, natural extracts, emulsifiers, and enzymes, as well as tailor-made systems.
