Presentation Description

Umima-additives to plant-based meat analogs are an important part of creating tasty and delicious products. Evaluating/analyzing the taste and correlating it to consumer demands is a tough challenge. In this study, we have tested out four different umami additives in a burger patty formulation. For the evaluation, a great toolkit for combining sensory panelist data with consumer data has been developed and the methodology behind this will be presented.

The 2023 Bridge2Food Summits Goals are to:

1. Provide key insights on how to accelerate connectivity in the plant-based foods & protein value chains

2. Define the Global Research Investment Agenda

3. Bring together the key value chain leaders to share visions and define a joint mission

4. Connect all stakeholders

5. Drive collaboration efforts

Each Summit will contribute to the SDG’s by focusing on the following themes:

- Affordability

- Healthy Diets & Nutrition

- Delicious Foods

- Sustainability

These themes will be part of focused Summit Tracks like:

- Track I: Consumer & Industry Challenges

- Track II: Delicious Food Innovations

- Track III: Sustainable Process Innovations
