For more than 50 years, Solae has used its innovation
and industry expertise
to help companies develop healthy, innovative food and beverage products
. In addition to providing customers with high-quality food ingredients, Solae provides industry partners with the support, service and expertise to help them identify and address opportunities within their markets and throughout the world
Solae's dedicated research and development professionals work with customers to support product development by providing formulation support and expertise when developing new products or improving existing ones. These resources ensure industry partners receive maximum value in their Solae products
and deliver against consumer taste and nutrition expectations.
As experts in the food ingredient market, Solae provides partners with new product ideas, supported by consumer initiated research. In the initial stages of development, Solae offers significant value by providing product ideation, market insights
and knowledge to connect customers with market opportunities. Solae's team of experts also provides guidance on soy positioning and messaging, to effectively differentiate and communicate the health and nutrition benefits enabled by Solae's soy ingredients.
Early in a project, Solae's expertise in sensory evaluation provides direction on how to formulate and optimize the taste and texture of products through the use of Solae's ingredients. When applied to projects, Solae has extensive sensory support capabilities
that determine whether products are providing consumers with the foods they love.
Solae's nutrition science team helps customers understand and apply research that supports the health benefits associated with soy
and communicate those benefits to key audiences. This team also communicates soy's health benefits to the broader marketplace and key nutrition influencers, leveraging years of clinical research supporting the value of soy foods.
Solae consumer research not only enables us to identify new opportunities in the marketplace for our customers, it ensures we continue to deliver the high-quality products consumers have come to expect. In addition to the technical aspects of sensory evaluation, Solae relies heavily on taste-testing panels to ensure we are providing a soy product that is as great-tasting as it is nutritious. Thanks to these taste-test panels, Solae has been able to improve the taste and quality of soy‑based products for many consumers. Learn more about consumer research techniques at Taste of Solae
