Different forms are available and suitable for fortification using ultra-high temperature (UHT) processing for pasteurized beverages that keeps their organoleptic profile and stability intact.

Gadot Biochemical Industries (Haifa Bay, Israel; GBI) is focusing on plant-based milk fortification with its mineral portfolio, enabling fortification of plant-based milk with macro-minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Different forms are available and suitable for fortification using ultra-high temperature (UHT) processing for pasteurized beverages that keeps their organoleptic profile and stability intact.

“[Market data] shows what we believe is a long-term trend, and a consumer commitment to plant-based milk alternatives,” said Ohad Cohen, Gadot Biochemical Industries’ CEO, in a press release. “With all the advantages associated with alternative milk products, it has to be fortified with minerals to be nutritionally equivalent with cow’s milk.”

Gadot offers its customers comprehensive product development assistance, including ensuring desirable bioavailability, solubility, taste and mouthfeel, color, and mineral content for defined health benefits.
