Making plant-based products taste as juicy and substantial as a hamburger is no easy feat. Our DuPont™ Danisco® range includes over a dozen ingredients to create tasty meat alternatives – including plant-based protein options for beef, chicken, pork, or seafood, and a robust selection of plant-based binding and structural ingredients that can help to solve stability and shelf life issues. Within this new portfolio, DuPont™ Danisco® VEGE cultures work for a wide variety of plant-based raw food materials, such as soy, peas, coconut, almond, nuts, oat, maize, rice, fruits and vegetables, to satisfy consumer taste and texture expectations in meat alternative products such as non-meat burgers, nuggets, hot dogs and other products.
We’ve expanded our VEGE range to include additional health benefits from our DuPont™ HOWARU® probiotics. The VEGE line helps our customers create plant-based meat alternatives to commonly enjoyed foods. New additions to the VEGE range include HOWARU® Dophilus VG, which contains Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM® and HOWARU Bifido VG, which contains Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™ – both of which have highly documented, positive results in human studies for digestive health and overall well-being.
The 50 top leaders at DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences have identified seven central goals and two focus areas within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In autumn, the company will host a workshop presenting tools for others with the same ambitions.
Expectant mothers can wake up to a wellness report of their unborn child and be notified if fetal heartbeat and movement are within acceptable ranges with the new Owlet Band, winner of two CES awards in the categories of Wearable Technology and Tech to Change the World. Specialized sensors housed in a fabric band that sits around the mother's abdomen track fetal heart rate and kick count, sending real-time data to a smartphone.
The agreement, supported by an initial investment of more than one million euros mainly made by DuPont, exemplifies the concept of circular economy and will lead to significant reductions in energy, water and transport consumption for both companies.
