Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, recently launched Maxavor® Fish YE – a new vegan, 100% allergen-free flavor solution. Derived from algal oil, this unique innovation allows food manufacturers to deliver an authentic fish taste and mouthfeel in a variety of plant-based fish alternative applications.
Answering today’s growing appetite for vegan fish flavors, Maxavor® Fish YE offers manufacturers of plant-based foods two taste profiles (Maxavor® Fish M YE and Maxavor® Fish W YE) to emulate the body, mouthfeel and taste of distinct fish varieties; one for rich and oily dark fish and another for fresh, light and fleshy white fish. Maxavor® Fish YE can therefore be used to create a wide range of appealing plant-based fish alternative products, such as vegetarian fish nuggets, vegan fish sauce and vegan fish cakes. Maxavor® Fish YE is also Kosher and Halal certified and suitable for several label claims.
It has been challenging for food producers to develop authentic-tasting, sustainable and label-friendly plant-based fish alternatives as most commercially available seafood flavors require the processing of fish/crustaceans, or are unable to meet Kosher or Halal needs. Maxavor® Fish YE are first-of-their-kind vegan fish flavors that solve this challenge.
