Enjoy it all: DSM talks taste, texture and health in the run up to FiE 202210 Nov 2022
Enhancing plant-based applications in taste, texture and health, addressing trending health priorities and introducing efficiency improving technologies – don’t miss the chance to meet DSM at FiE.
As excitement builds ahead of the sector’s biggest annual event in Europe, DSM is all set to champion taste, texture and health for the people and planet. DSM’s ingredients, expertise and solutions will come together in a wide range of unique product concepts on display at the show, demonstrating how manufacturers and their consumers can enjoy it all. Read on for a sneak peek of what visitors to stand 4.A10 can expect at this year’s Food ingredients Europe (FiE).
Plant-based: The next generation
FiE attendees will be invited to discover DSM’s vision for the future of plant-based dairy, meat, and fish alternatives. These next-generation solutions represent a breakthrough in recreating the taste, texture and nutritional profile of consumers’ favourite foods and beverages.
Visitors will be able to experience Vertis™ CanolaPRO®, a plant protein isolate with more than 90% protein content and containing all nine essential amino acids. It’s free from the major allergens such as soy, gluten and dairy and has a protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) of 1, making it comparable to soy or whey.
Looking to emerging plant-based categories, like fish alternatives, DSM will be showcasing its taste and nutritional capabilities. Maxavor® Fish, DSM’s vegan process flavour allows plant-based producers to create authentically tasting sea-food alternatives. Meanwhile DSM’s vegan omega-3 fatty acid ingredient life’s™OMEGA, allows formulators to provide the same eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 content as found in traditional fish products, without impacting marine ecosystems.
There’s equally good news for cheese-lovers thanks to DSM’s new portfolio for plant-based cheese. Overcoming many of the formulation challenges associated with creating authentic-tasting cheese alternatives, this varied collection of flavour, texture, nutrition, and colour solutions allows manufacturers to build rich flavour profiles that replicate the signature taste and feel of traditional cheeses. From plant-based Parmesan to cheddar and mozzarella, with DSM’s flavour solutions cheese-fans needn’t miss out on their favourite dishes, even while eating dairy-free. Visitors can also discover DSM’s range of enzymes for plant-based drinks including the Delvo®Plant portfolio which unlocks the natural sweetness and can improve the nutritional profile of plant-based beverages.
Goodness through and through
DSM understands the growing demand from consumers for wholesome, high-quality ingredients that offer additional health benefits, from immunity to energy. FiE attendees will have the opportunity to explore this ethos through a range of nutritious food and beverage concepts. These include an energy drink that combines green tea extract and ginseng to support improved focus, concentration and mood, vitamin and mineral premixes designed to reduce tiredness and fatigue, and a spoonable yogurt, which offers an energy and protein boost for active consumers. DSM will also spotlight its solutions for the nutrition and weight management categories with a novel, ready-to-drink (RTD) beverage dubbed ‘PlantPower Oat #StayStrong’, alongside a tasty high-protein energy bar.
Eyes on efficiencies
At FiE, DSM will be showcasing three innovations designed to make raw materials work harder. DSM’s newly launched enzyme solution Delvo®Plant Go, for instance, simplifies the production process for oat-based dairy alternatives by combining the liquefaction and saccharification processes into one convenient step. The result for manufactures is a shorter, more efficient process for creating high-quality, sweet, and creamy milk alternatives.
New to the market, DSM’s Panamore® Xtense will be another star product featured at FiE. This phospholipase enables bread producers to create cleaner-label bread and is designed to maintain a great taste and texture over a product’s shelf life. By improving stability, it is particularly useful in alternatives to DATEM when working with varying flour types, such as wholewheat and varying flour quality.
Finally, DSM will be discussing its easy-to-use Delvo®Phage test kit, developed to support dairy manufacturers with waste reduction caused by bacteriophage contamination. This unique qPCR test kit offers phage detection results ‘on the spot’ at several steps during production, helping producers increase production capacity, speed, and quality, while reducing financially and environmentally costly waste.

With so many innovations on show, a visit to DSM’s stand at this year’s FiE won’t be one to miss. Arrange a meeting with the expert team, or find out more details on how to connect with DSM below.
