Nutrition

Consumers are increasingly making more nutritionally informed food choices to support their well-being. Unfortunately, many plant-based products fail to deliver optimal nutrition, with lengthy ingredient declarations and high salt levels compensating for poor taste delivery. We can help you develop products that meet the increased nutritional demands of consumers, such as decreasing overall sodium content or fortifying with added nutrients.

TasteSense™ Salt
Deliver on perception of salt while decreasing overall salt content

EmulGold Fibre
