Customised plant protein blends by NEXTERA®

Blends to get your taste right

Our local flavourists are like perfumers for food. They combine premium non-animal protein bases to develop an endless range of taste profiles for you to choose from, while neutralising off-notes brought by vegan and vegetarian proteins.

Blends to get your colour and visual specs right

Through an integrated approach, we assure your plant-based food solutions possess the desired meat-like visual aspect.

Blends to get your functional properties right

To match the sensory profiles of meat and fish equivalents, we develop blends to optimize textures. Think about temperature, bite, and the degree of fibrousness, juiciness or chewiness. Moreover, we focus on optimal shelf life and stability.

Blends to get your nutritional value right

NEXTERA® can optimise the nutritional value of plant-based meat and fish alternatives, without compromising on the sensory experience. For instance, we can reduce fat or enrich with vitamins or minerals.
