Chr. Hansen launches culture kit for fermented plant bases

Chr. Hansen has launched a new culture specifically developed for fermented plant bases as the hunger for dairy-free yoghurt alternatives grows.

The VEGA Culture Kit is comprised of customizable starter cultures, probiotics and bioprotective strains. It offers producers the flexibility to create customized and differentiated features for their products in terms of taste, texture, health and sustainability.

“Because the composition of plant bases is more varied than traditional dairy products, it is particularly important to utilize cultures expertly selected to meet the performance demands of dairy-free applications,” said Dr. Ross Crittenden, Chr. Hansen’s senior director for Commercial Development.

“We designed the VEGA Culture Kit to be simple to use while still offering the flexibility to create differentiated products that satisfy the primary consumer drivers that power this growing category.”

As well as offering enhanced taster and texture, the culture kit also offers probiotic support and boosted sustainability credentials.
