    Innovation of cereal plant-based milk alternatives using enzyme technology

    Plant, cereal and nut-based milks now make up 10 percent of the overall milk market as consumers look to improve their health & wellness, explore novel flavours and prioritize sustainability and animal welfare. When it comes to formulating new plant-based milk alternatives, process optimization is key to delivering a product that has the organoleptic properties consumers crave while supporting improved nutrition and sustainable manufacturing. This speaker session will introduce the process of manufacturing cereal-based milk alternatives and will highlight how enzymes can be used to optimize the production process in order to create unique and crave-worthy flavour and texture profiles in the dairy alternative space.

    Bonne et heureuse année à tous,

    Malgré la situation actuelle de la pandémie au Québec, nous espérons toujours tenir notre Salon des Fournisseurs 2022 le 7 avril prochain à l’Espace St-Hyacinthe. Nous avons cependant décidé de retarder les inscriptions temporairement. Une décision finale sera prise à la mi-février sur la tenue du salon le 7 avril (et le début des inscriptions) ou de retarder le salon au mois de mai.

    Nous vous remercions de votre compréhension, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec nous si vous avez des questions.

    Le comité du Salon des Fournisseurs de l’ICSTA Section Québec,
