Many plant-based products rely on saturated palm or coconut fat to achieve the desired texture and mouthfeel, but these fats are not ideal from a nutritional or sustainability standpoint. One of the biggest challenges faced by plant-based burger producers is finding an alternative for coconut fat that provides the same perception and mouthfeel in their products. A problem that requires a solution.

It was one of our customers that first brought this issue at hand to us, looking for an alternative of the above. We at Vaess, Dutch food engineers, were happy to take on the challenged, and developed a revolutionary solution with VascoVega EML, a plant-based melting fat replacer. A game-changer in the world of plant-based meat alternatives that mimics the characteristics of saturated fats while reducing the overall fat content and significantly lowering the saturated fat content.
