Called Supertex, the soy protein provides what the company claims to be improved texture, chewing qualities, and water-hold capacity.
An “all-in-one solution” for meat-mimicking soy protein is now available from the Israel-based soy producer Solbar (Ashdod, Israel). Called Supertex, the soy protein provides what the company claims to be improved texture, chewing qualities, and water-holding capacity.
Supertex is neutral in taste and pale in color.
“The major advantage of the product is that it's easy to work with,” says David Kraus, Solbar global applications manager. “Instead of sourcing and blending functional soy proteins, textured soy particulates, stabilizers, and texturizing agents in-house, food technologists and new-product development managers can use Supertex as an easy and reliable all-in-one solution for vegetarian and meat applications.”
For a first-hand look at Solbar’s innovation, visit Solbar’s booth #2B47 at November’s Functional Ingredients Europe show in Paris. Vegetarian canapés made with Supertex will be available.
