In July 2017 Leiber finalized its Veaty® concept and officially presented it at the IFT in Las Vegas. This concept especially has been created as solution for vegetarian & vegan applications, like: meat analogues, textured vegetable proteins (TVP), spreads, high protein applications, etc. and is based on a “building block system” which consists of the 3 basic functionalities:
Off-taste masking - Adding taste profiles - Colouring
Extracts for Masking:
To neutralize the genuine, unpleasant off-taste of the raw materials used for vegetarian & vegan applications, especially vegetable proteins like: soya, pea, lupine and chickpea
Extracts for Taste (BN = Body Notes, TN = Top Notes):
The body notes impart “basic tastes” with profiles like beef, chicken, lamb or pork The top notes (TN) can be applied as key flavour components to individualise and strengthen product taste profiles like: roasted-smoky, barbecued, roasted-beef
Extracts for Colouring:
Neutral in taste and giving an intense brown colour to achieve a “meaty-like” look.
The Veaty® range is a tailor-made and improved development for vegetarian & vegan food applications based on our standard Leiber extracts. Due to the fact that our yeast extracts do have a natural protein content of approx. 70% the biggest advantage we can offer is that we are solely using “protein-mixes” (yeast extracts), to achieve the mentioned functionalities. This means no “non-protein” ingredients are added to the final product. Next to this our Veaty® products are of course clean label, from a natural source, GMO-free (VLOG certified), kosher, halal and gluten free according to EU legislation 828/2014.
