Prinova launched a range of plant-based premixes for dairy-replacement products.

Prinova (Carol Stream, IL) launched a range of plant-based premixes for dairy-replacement products. These nutrient-rich premixes are rich in micronutrients that are often missing in vegan and other non-dairy diets. Its plant-based milk and yogurt are made from Prinova’s 85% pea protein, high in branched chain amino acids (BCAA) and allergen-free. The milk is smooth and creamy with a full yet light mouthfeel, and the yogurt is whiter than most plant-based alternatives on the market. Prinova also offers a premix optimized for plant-based cheeses.

Each serving (25 mg of premix) contains 15% of the recommended intake of vitamin B12 and 50% of the recommended intake of vitamin D. The premixes can all be adapted to include additional functional ingredients, such as probiotics, as well as flavorings.

“The rise of plant-based diets is one of the most important trends in the food industry today,” said Tony Gay, head of technical sales and new product development for nutrition at Prinova, in a press release. “It has created a whole new consumer segment with particular nutritional needs, and new challenges and opportunities for manufacturers. One of the best strategies they can adopt is the use of nutrient-rich premixes. Our new recipes demonstrate how easy it is to offer appealing dairy replacement products that meet the nutritional requirements of vegan consumers.”
