Concern about animal welfare and the environment has helped fuel a huge increase in demand for plant-based products. The shift towards vegan and vegetarian diets has created new consumer needs, and it’s important for manufacturers to understand and meet them. Prinova’s wealth of knowledge in the plant-based sector (we have 8% of the global market share of pea protein for example) means we can offer you all the ingredients you need for your vegan products. As well as vegan versions of many of our ingredients (including amino acids, proteins, and hydrocolloids), we offer premixes specially formulated for the nutritional needs of vegetarians and vegans.
Vegan diets can be low in some key micronutrients. Vitamin B12, for example, is crucial for functions such as the manufacture of red blood cells but is absent from virtually all plant-based foods. In order to meet the nutritional challenges associated with plant-based diets, we offer specially formulated premixes that are rich in nutrients like calcium and Vitamins B12 and D.
