Hydrosol Addresses Growing Demand For Vegan Dairy Alternatives

Alternative nutrition forms are becoming more and more popular, and vegan and vegetarian products continue to gain ground, according to s study by market research company Mintel. Meat and milk alternative products long ago stopped being the exception and are more and more becoming standard, around the globe. According to Innova Market Insights, in the last few years Latin America has had the highest annual growth in vegan products at 132 percent, outstripping the next fastest growing markets of Europe (50 percent), Australasia (45 percent) and North America (34 percent).

Not only are more and more vegan foods available, consumer expectations on flavour, texture and enjoyment are also rising. Innovative solutions are in demand. For the wide spectrum of dairy alternatives, Hydrosol has developed individual stabilising and texturing systems that give products properties that are very close to those of products made from cow’s milk. This includes fermented deserts based on alternatives like almond milk, that contain no animal milk components, soy or gluten. A functional system of modified starch, hydrocolloids and plant fibres lets manufacturers adjust products to get a texture comparable to yogurt. A creamy, smooth consistency and authentic flavour are characteristic of vegan creamed cheese alternatives made with stabilising systems from the Stabisol range. Used in vegan cheese alternatives, these tailor-made ingredient complexes give ideal melt properties as well as the taste and enjoyment consumers want. For drinking milk, Hydrosol works with alternatives not only to animal milk, but also to soy. A current example is a drink based on sunflower and oats that delivers a pleasing flavour. Functional systems for soft-melt, creamy vegan ice creams round out the product line.

“Our goal is not just to present customers with ideas for vegan alternative products, but to deliver concepts with added value,” explains Dr Dorotea Pein, Innovation and Product Manager for Dairy Products. “So in developing our stabilising and texturing systems, we address the latest trends. One example is the rising demand for protein-rich products. According to market studies, this is by far the leading category. We use knowledge from this area in the development of dairy alternative products.”

Another example is vegan foods fortified with vitamins and minerals that compensate for potential nutritional deficiencies and can also be tailored to specific target groups. Possible products include vegan desserts for children, and milk-free drinks for athletes and seniors. Here, Hydrosol works very closely with its sister company SternVitamin to offer vitamin enrichment specifically for the needs of vegans. Like with all Hydrosol product concepts, its vegan dairy alternative products can be adapted to meet individual customer wishes.
