Avebe showcased a clean label, plant-based alternative to Parmesan cheese based on potato ingredients at the Food ingredients Europe (FiE) trade show in Paris, France in December 2022, according to a news story by Joshua Poole published by NutritionInsight.
With more than a century of experience in potato product development, the Dutch starch manufacturer continues to focus its expertise on the burgeoning dairy-alternative cheese market with this latest innovation.
“We launched a new concept for firm cheese just like Parmesan this year that we call ‘plant-based Parmesan alternative,’” Meleknur Tüzün, business development manager for plant-based dairy and cheese at Avebe, told NutritionInsight from the show floor.
“This product can be made firm and extra firm. The powder pieces do not stick to each other and are very dry, so you can just sprinkle them on your meal. It is very easy to eat, just like a normal Parmesan experience.”
