Vegan Mortadella

This easy-to-use 3-component solution has been developed to meet the wishes of the conscious consumer who is looking for an indulgent moment. This 'meat' is easy to slice like other conventional cold cuts. For this Vegan Mortadella, we used our Pectacon® Planty binding mix, Pectacon® Planty aroma blend, some water, vegetable oil/fat, pistachio and herbs & spices. Of course, the Pectacon® Planty aroma blend can be adjusted to your preferences. Download solution sheet Vegan Mortadella.

Pea-based ‘Hot Dog’ with Pectacon M-7049

The Pectacon M-7049 is a stabilizing blend specially designed for binding vegan hot dogs, frankfurters and other emulsified sausage substitutes. The M-7049 will provide the perfect binding in both cold and hot conditions. When combined with Solbar’s Pisiumtex 2405 and Ingredion’s Vitessence Pulse 1803 you will create a great juicy and firm textured hot dog. Download solution sheet Vegan Hot Dog.

Vegan ingredients for different applications

From meat alternatives to egg replacement in bakery, plant-based ice cream and dairy-free products, we have developed a solution for every application. All animal-derived ingredients, including meat, milk, egg and gelatin, have specific functional characteristics that can sometimes be challenging to replicate. This is why we are extremely proud of the quality level we have reached with this vegan product line. Our specialists have managed to obtain similar characteristics with solely plant-based ingredients, without compromising on taste, texture, smell or mouthfeel. 
Below you can find an overview of different applications.
  • Vegan Ice cream

  • Vegan Dairy Alternatives

  • Egg replacement for Bakery

  • Gelatin-free jelly dessert

  • Vegan Nutritional Shakes

  • Egg replacement for emulsified sauces

  • Vegan meat replacers
