To develop plant-based whole-cut meat that mimics animal meat, it is essential to understand the organoleptic effects of the structural and chemical properties of meat. Redefine Meat evaluates and quantifies the impact of each parameter on the sensory experience, using the data to develop plant-based materials and components for whole-cut meat. In this talk, the following topics will be discussed: Redefine Meat’s journey toward the perfect animal-free steak, the technology behind the innovation, the discoveries and innovations along the way, and the challenges that still lie ahead.Continue reading “A scientific approach for developing plant-based whole-cut meat”

The 2020 World Population Data Sheet projects that the world population will increase from 7.8 billion in 2020 to 9.9 billion by 20501. Not only the global population growth but the rising understanding of the inefficiency in protein conversion through livestock meat production2 drives the transition from animal to plant-based protein sources.Continue reading “Protein transitions: fermentation, cultivated meat and structured meat”
