Loryma, an expertise in functional wheat ingredients, has come up with an innovative concept for vegan bacon that ideally replicates the sensory properties of its meaty counterpart. The anticipated mouthfeel is achieved by the wheat-based binding component Lory Bind, while a matching bacon spice blend ensures authentic taste. Thanks to hassle-free production and simple preparation, the concept is perfect for use in the convenience and gastronomy segments.

Consumer demand for genuine plant-based substitutes to famous meat products is rising steadily. As a consequence, there is a need for product innovations that are uncomplicated to process and prepare, and are convincing in terms of sensory characteristics. That is why the company has formulated a perfectly balanced recipe for bacon based on wheat ingredients, which food manufacturers can use to diversify their vegan product portfolio.

As a component of a modular system, the product provides optimal possibilities for the development of ready-to-eat products with the preferred and expected texture. The functional starch blends are odourless and neutral in taste, and are hence perfectly suited to the production of vegetarian and vegan meat substitutes that can be individually seasoned as per the requirements. To ensure that the bacon preserves its structure during cooking, the binder offers an irreversible internal structure.

When prepared in a pan, the vegan bacon beseems behaving like the original, becoming crispy on the outside while retaining a delicate, fibrous texture. A smoky seasoning brings the specific bacon flavour that consumers anticipate and enjoy. The plant-based substitute can be used in various foodservice, catering or convenience applications, whether for a breakfast buffet, on a vegan burger, diced on tarte flambée, in casseroles or as a topping for salads.

Henrik Hetzer, MD, Loryma informed- “Our raw materials combine naturalness with maximum functionality. In addition to uncomplicated handling, they offer manufacturers the opportunity to create healthy and sure-fire products that perfectly meet the current consumer trend for meat-free convenience foods.”
