Mask Aftertastes, Balance Sweetness, Enhance Flavor, and Improve Mouthfeel

Magna-Brands™ Plant-Based Proteins Taste Modulator leads the industry in customizable taste and mouthfeel solutions. Our solutions can be custom-developed and modified to address your product’s specific development challenges.

Plant-based protein products provide a source of high protein with lower fat, and inherent nutrients, and are perceived to have less of an impact on the environment than animal-derived proteins.

Plant-based proteins are growing in popularity due to these benefits, but plant-based proteins often have taste and mouthfeel challenges that must be overcome by formulators to be fully acceptable to the consumer.

For many palettes, plant proteins such as pea, hemp, pumpkin, rice, and soya have definitive aftertastes which are not considered desirable. The green, “beanie” notes, chalkiness, and cardboard-like tastes are often deterrents for products wishing to capitalize on the many positive features of plant-based proteins.
