Just as consumers are balancing their needs and priorities – health, nutrition, indulgence and taste, among other interests – food and beverage developers must also carefully balance their formulations to create winning products. The balance of fats and oils, in particular, is crucial in delivering on the many attributes that people are seeking. Learn how to identify the ideal blend of fats and oils for plant-based recipes and other types of in-demand products.

As products are developed, manufacturers must address potential challenges in appearance, flavor, texture and mouthfeel. Because there is no one-size-fits-all approach, developers can team with experts who understand the synergistic systems needed to create satisfying products.

The latter involves ensuring ingredient compatibilities, processing efficiencies and in-plant testing. This is know-how that Kemin Food Technologies provides through its dedicated use of applied science to address industry challenges.
