The Future is Fat: The Startups Looking to Fatten up Vegan Food – vegconomist

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Research shows vast swathes of the global population are turning to plant-based for a healthier diet, with vegan food associated with a wide array of health benefits. On the other hand, however, researchers have concluded that many consumers simply find processed animal-based foods too tasty to give up. 

According to Phil Morle from plant-based industry investor Main Sequence; to “unlock the mysteries of fats and create animal-free fats” is “essential for the future of the industry”. Fat holds the key to flavour, and creating viable, healthy and tasty vegan fats is the latest innovation frontier.

With this in mind, vegconomist takes a look at the fattiest players in the alt meat sphere:  

77 Foods 

After being named by Unilever as the winner of its Innovation Challenge, French startup 77 Foods has continued to develop its plant-based fat using sunflower oil to create an adipose tissue that closely resembles pork fat. Through this development, 77 foods have created a “mind-blowing” plant-based bacon which 92% of participants in a blind test preferred to conventional pork bacon, according to the brand.

Low Fat Food for Dogs with Gastrointestinal Issues

Fish, Potato & Pea complete wet food

London, August 2021; Pooch & Mutt premium British health food brand (whose products happen to be consumed by dogs), has introduced a new addition to its grain-free wet dog food range, targeted at those with sensitive digestion and gastrointestinal disease.

Fish, Potato & Pea is the newest flavour launched by the brand to cater to dogs that are overweight or suffer from gastrointestinal disorders such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or those that are prone to pancreatitis.

Historically, low-fat diets have often contained sub-par ingredients and low levels of protein. Pooch & Mutt have launched vet-approved low-fat wet dog food made from over 60% fish, with a very small percentage of fat (2% wet matter) which is a great option for those that have been advised to keep dietary fat low. The all-natural recipe is also grain-free and naturally hypoallergenic, suitable for dogs with food sensitivities or allergies.

The sustainably sourced fresh white fish is a nutritious protein source and a great option for fussy eaters. High in Omega 3 fatty acids, it has many benefits for skin & coat health, joint health and is rich in antioxidants to help strengthen the immune system.

Oftentimes, dogs are allergic or sensitive to

Vow and Nourish team up to make cell-based meat with animal-free fat

Dive Brief:

  • Cell-based meat company Vow is partnering with Nourish Ingredients, a company that makes animal fats through precision fermentation. The two Australian companies will blend their products together, adding fats to cell-based meat so the end product more accurately reflects the taste and mouthfeel of meat from an animal.
  • Vow co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer Tim Noakesmith said in a written statement that fat is “part of what makes meat irresistible,” and it has been missing from many alternative proteins. “We’re committed to including a fat profile in our food that outperforms even the best animal fats we eat today,” he said.
  • While there is only one place where cell-based meat is currently on the market — Singapore, which has given regulatory approval to Eat Just’s cultured chicken bites — many companies are working on cell-based meat products so they could be ready for the market once they are federally approved.

Dive Insight:

Fat is vital to meat’s taste, juiciness and mouthfeel, but it isn’t talked about much by cell-based meat companies at this point in time. While many of them are likely working on culturing fat cells or discussing partnerships with companies specializing in producing animal-free fat,

Buttermilk balances sweetness and keeps baked goods tender

Blueberry Cornmeal Cake

Although one of today’s recipe ingredients may seem a bit old-fashioned, it’s the perfect addition to baked goods such as muffins, pancakes, quick breads and cakes. The ingredient is buttermilk.

Beyond adding a subtle tang to balance the sweetness of baked goods, buttermilk does a couple of amazing things. First, the acidity of the buttermilk activates the baking soda and produces a gas that causes the dough or batter to rise. That acidity also breaks down protein strands in batters, which gives baked goods a delicate texture.

The buttermilk our grandparents enjoyed was the liquid that remained after butter was churned from cream. Today, buttermilk is typically made by adding cultures (beneficial bacteria) to 1% milk. The result is a slightly thickened milk with a tart, tangy flavor. Because buttermilk tends to separate while sitting in the refrigerator, shake well before using.

If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can make a substitute by stirring one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar into one cup

Eating more foods that are high in protein and saturated fatty acids is associated with better thyroid function, according to findings from a cross-sectional study published in Nutrition.

“This is the first study to analyze the influence of a comprehensive set of dietary factors on plasma free triiodothyronine, free thyroxine and thyroid-stimulating hormone levels,” Dubravka Brdar, MD, a specialist in the department of nuclear medicine at University Hospital Split in Croatia, and colleagues wrote. “The study showed a negative effect of frequent consumption of foods with a high glycemic index on thyroid function. At the same time, ‘healthy foods’ with high protein concentration and foods rich in saturated fatty acids that are not limited in consumption nowadays showed positive effects on thyroid function.”
