Vegetarian burgers are the latest trend.

Bunge Loders Croklaan enters the veggie burger category with the introduction of a range of plant-based fats designed as compelling replacements to meat fats. The 100% plant-based solutions mimic the sensory characteristics of the “real thing.

The company’s palm-based system is a flaked product that has proven to impart better functional attributes to meat-like products. For example, it can mimic the fat-bubbles and pockets characteristic of animal fat in hamburgers and is easier to process than liquid oils or waxy fats such as the more commonly used rapeseed oil (RP) or sunflower oils (SFO).

That boasts the ability to deliver more bite, a juicy mouthfeel, and full flavor, at just the right moment and produce no oil leakage or excessive smoking on a cooking surface.
