BLC introduces plant-based fats for meat analogues

Dutch oil and fat producer, Bunge Loders Croklaan (BLC), has entered the veggie burger category with the launch of a range of plant-based fats designed to mimic meat fats in vegan products.

The company’s palm and shea-based fat systems possess the “unique” melting profiles and can be applied as crucial fat ingredients to meatless burgers.

According to BLC, both solutions deliver “more bite, a juicy mouthfeel, and full flavour”, whilst also offering no oil leakage or excessive smoking on a cooking surface.

“Fat, especially derived from beef, is the key contributor to flavour. We succeeded in recreating this sensory experience with high quality plant-based fats,” said Feike Swennenhuis, Marketing Director for BLC Europe.
