Which Processing Techniques Make Plant-Based Meat Behave Like Real Meat?

In order to mimic the structure of meat-using plant proteins, a protein structuring step is required to allow the formation of fibrous structures. Several technologies have been developed to create these structures. Extrusion — both low- and high-moisture — is the dominating process to produce the fibrous structure. New technologies such as shear cell technology and 3D food printing are gradually rising, offering different textures that ultimately may provide a wider range of products to consumers.

The Rising Demand for Plant-Based Meat

One of the greatest challenges the world is facing today is ensuring that the growing population has access to adequate, nutritious, and sustainable food. The global food system is under pressure to address this challenge, and this pressure is particularly high in the livestock production segment. The global consumption of beef, veal, poultry, and pork has grown by 30% in the last 15 years, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The demand for meat will continue to grow more than 13% in the next 10 years. Plant-based meat analog is an attractive option to address some of these challenges and provide a sustainable and nutritious alternative to meat.Continue reading
