Hormel Ingredient Solutions launches new plant-based alternatives

New offerings capitalise on growing consumer demand for plant-based foods.

Hormel Ingredient Solutions, part of Hormel Foods, has launched a new line of plant-based ingredient solutions available to food manufacturers across the US. These new products are designed to enable food manufacturers incorporate more plant-based foods into their offerings for the growing number of consumers interested in adding these items to their diets.

Powered by pea protein, the new plant-based offerings include fully cooked crumbles and uncooked ground products, with the former available in options ranging from traditional and Italian, to breakfast and Chorizo-style flavours.

Hormel Foods designed these plant-based options in convenient forms and flavours to make them easily adaptable to any application or meal daypart as an additional source of protein or as a substitution for other kinds.

Paul Sheehan, director of sales for Hormel Ingredient Solutions, concluded: “The bottom line is that people want to add more plants to their diet, but they also want them to taste great. These new items allow food manufacturers to explore how easy it is to add the power of plant-based ingredients to a variety of applications.”
