Rudin®ProVega: protein structures for meat alternatives

These days, a growing number of consumers is adopting a flexitarian or vegetarian 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, a protein structure that can be used as a substitute for 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 customize 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 is easily applicable on a meat-processing line, which enables an efficient production.

Which protein sources are suitable?

We can create the Rudin®ProVega structure from different protein sources, both animal-based, such as Egg and Whey, and plant-based, such as Pea, Soy, and Faba bean. Rudin®ProVega is available as a protein structure and as a ready-to-use blend of all ingredients which contributes to a tasty vegetarian product.

What type of products can be made?

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