Solbar, a soy ingredients company, is launching two soy-based products to complement its processed meat products.
The new products will officially be introduced at Food Ingredients Europe, which will run from November 29 to December 1 in Paris.
Solbar Q 932 is an isolated soy protein designed to support protein-enhancement systems applied in whole muscle meat products. The new ingredient features low viscosity, high dispersibility, bland flavour and a pale colour, according to the company. It may be used in hams, turkey, chicken breasts or other muscle-based products.
Solcon S-210 is a functional soy protein concentrate for emulsified and comminuted cured meats, poultry and fish. The company said Solcon S-210 contributes emulsification and gelling properties to comminuted meat products and meat analogs.
"This emphasises the importance of the meat-processing industry to Solbar," said Hadas Richter, research and development manager. "The meat processing industry is a traditional soy protein consumer and has always occupied an important position to Solbar's global operations. We've made it a point to provide innovative solutions to help make meat processors' offerings healthier and cost-effective."
Israel-based Solbar has a US office in St. Paul, Minnesota.
