Textured Vegetable Proteins TVP

Vegan meat analogues and High Moisture Extrusion Cooking (HMEC)

Plant based protein food is a game changer in today’s nutrition and plays an increasing role in a healthy diet and in a sustainable planet. High moisture meat analogues (HMMA) and textured vegetable proteins (TVP, also textured soy protein or soy meat) have become a widely accepted and tasty alternative to meat. Gericke equipment operates in the raw material and recipe management, in the extrusion process and in the downstream finishing like flavour addition and marination.
