Plant-based ingredients for alternative dairy and meat substitutes flourished at SupplySide West 2019, with suppliers offering enhanced options that provide flavors, mouthfeel and texture typically associated with traditional dairy and meat products.
Sugar reduction solutions continue to evolve with ingredients including allulose, stevia, stevia blends, prebtiotic fibers, monk fruit and more.
