Consumers are turning to vegan alternatives for their favorite foods for a variety for reasons – primarily health and environmental concerns. Even those with less adventurous palates have been stepping outside of the comfort zones and trying plant-based foods purely out of curiosity.
“Our newest collection offers tasty seasoning solutions designed specifically for highly in-demand vegan foods. Each of these blends deliver craveable flavors that will keep consumers coming back for more,” Cushen adds.
Designed to help make meatless proteins taste meatier. “A common complaint among consumers about plant-based burgers is that they don’t taste enough like meat. This seasoning is the solution for just that. Not only does it offer a depth of flavor, but it also makes vegan burgers taste just like the real deal,” he describes.
