Rudin®ProVega and Rudin®Plantify: protein structures for meat alternatives

These days, a growing number of consumers is adopting a flexitarian, vegetarian, or plant-based diet. Reasons for choosing such a diet range from health to sustainability to animal welfare.

At Ruitenberg, we respond to these consumer needs by presenting our Rudin®ProVega and Rudin®Plantify, two protein structures that can be used as a substitute for meat or to produce hybrid products in combination with meat. Thanks to an innovative process, we succeeded in creating a protein structure base with a unique texture, juiciness and bite. Moreover, various protein sources qualify for this process. In close co-operation with you, we can customise this protein structure to your specific taste and preferences.

What does Rudin®ProVega make unique?

The fact that we can adapt this concept to your requirements. Our R&D staff will be pleased to develop and test your product ideas with you. Rudin®ProVega and Rudin®Plantify is easily applicable on a meat-processing line, which enables an efficient production. We are also happy to think along with you when it comes to binding, taste, and texture of your end product.

The unique structure of our products allows you to distinguish yourself in the market.

Which protein sources are suitable?

We can create the Rudin®ProVega and Rudin®Plantify structure from different protein sources, both animal-based, such as egg and whey, and plant-based, such as pea, red lentil, and faba bean. Rudin®ProVega and Rudin®Plantify are available as a protein structure and as a ready-to-use blend of all ingredients which contributes to a tasty vegetarian and plant-based product.

What type of products can be made?

Rudin®ProVega and Rudin®Plantify will enable you to develop meat substitutes for products like nuggets, patties, snacks, kebab and pulled pork. Or, alternatively, to make vegetarian fillings for sausage rolls or other snacks.

In addition, Rudin®Plantify is very suitable for hybrid products. Combinations can be made with meat, fish and vegetables.
