Today, more than ever, it makes sense for food processors to optimize their overall protein strategy. Solae's soy protein
isolates and concentrates can help food processors provide their customers affordable, nutritious meat products without compromising quality, taste or functionality. Solae's meat solutions team, including food scientists, nutrition scientists, sensory experts and market researchers, works with processors to develop solutions for meat applications.
Solae provides companies with the most advanced soy protein technologies
, offering solutions to a wide variety of products — poultry, beef, pork, seafood and meat-free systems — to help maximize profitability
The use of Solae soy proteins make it possible to optimize marination/brine levels while reducing purge and maintaining succulence in high abuse circumstances such as freezing, precooking, microwaving from frozen and extended hold-time after cooking. All this while maintaining meat-like texture and improving sliceability.
Characterized by superior fat and water binding properties, using Solae soy protein isolates or concentrates in combination with Solae's textured line of soy proteins provides meat-like texture and appearance whether in a meat or meat-free system. Ground meat products include: coarse ground sausage, pepperoni, salami, dried fermented sausage, hamburger or beef patties, chicken patties, formed strips, patty nuggets, meatballs, meats for sauces, meat fillings and meat toppings.
Solae soy protein isolates and concentrates excel at stabilizing fat and water. This allows processors to take advantage of lower cost and lower functionality raw materials. Yet they can still optimize cook yields and reduce purge without sacrificing eating qualities.
Canned Tuna Products
Soy fiber, used in Solae's vegetable broths, serves as an excellent application for canned tuna products. The powdered product is easily dispersed in a brine solution, and its use results in excellent finished product flavor and appearance for flaked tuna products.
can be a cost-effective alternative to animal proteins for a variety of meat applications. Solae's meat solutions team works with processors to develop applications that maximize profitability
and help control variable meat costs through formula optimization without compromising quality, nutrition and functionality. Soy protein has also had the benefit of much more stable and predictable pricing and supply than other animal proteins, which alleviates volatility in ingredient procurement efforts.
Because soy is a high-quality, plant-based protein, it is a great solution for meat replacement. There is an increasing population not only of vegetarians, but also "meat reducers
," or those looking to decrease meat consumption, fueled significantly by health concerns. Soy protein is shown to be heart-healthy, supported by a FDA heart-health claim
, cholesterol-free and low in saturated fat and carbohydrates, which makes it very attractive to health-conscious consumers.
Solae gives customers the satisfaction and peace of mind that Solae products arrive only after undergoing stringent safety and quality
procedures. Solae is the industry leader in quality and safety, and sets the standard for consistent protein ingredients.
