Hi-Food, CSM Ingredients’ R&D business, has teamed up with Alianza Team Europe, aiming to develop innovative solutions in the added-value fats and oils sector.
The two companies plan to develop high-value, clean label protein emulsions to improve the taste and texture of plant-based meat alternatives.
As part of the partnership, the two companies have presented a new combination of the all-vegetable fat lipid-based solution MirrorTissue by Alianza Team with Hi-Food’s plant proteins and fibres obtained from oil seeds.
According to the partners, they have been able to develop an ‘advanced and high performing’ version of MirrorTissue, clean label and without the use of allergens or tropical oils.
Emanuele Pizzigalli, chief R&I officer and co-founder of Hi-Food, said: “Together with Alianza Team, we have laid a strong foundation for the development of one of the first next-generation specialty grease and oil products, employing cutting-edge proprietary technologies”.
“I believe that this business relationship represents the perfect example of pragmatic innovation. When dynamic companies with a clear vision of the market and different skills come together, focusing on innovation and high-tech, the result is surprising and effective.”
Jesus Jaimes, VP of Team Solutions (a business unit of Alianza Team), said: “In this instance, our shared vision was to address the challenges in the plant-based sector by developing cutting-edge solutions that enhance the taste, mouthfeel, applicability, and appearance of plant-based products while ensuring cleaner labels. This business relationship is the first step in what we see as a broader international collaboration set to revolutionise the food industry.”
The advanced development of MirrorTissue will be presented by the two companies at Food Ingredients Europe, held in Frankfurt from 28-30 November.
