Fooditive introduces its vegan casein for dairy applications


Following its upcycled natural sweetener, the company is now expanding to animal-free dairy proteins

Fooditive Group is introducing animal-free casein powder, designed to replace cow's milk in dairy applications. Casein is one of the primary proteins which influence the texture, taste, and functionality of milk.

“Making healthy and affordable food for everyone means that we simply need to target every aspect of our diet, and animal-free products should definitely be a part of it. Delivering ingredients that have been produced sustainably is the main key to a long-lasting future that can support the growing human population,” said Moayad Abushokhedim, founder and CEO of Fooditive.

“We understand that the production of food-grade genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is subject to constant debate due to the combination of negative consumer perceptions and the distrust of conglomerates. Our aim is to change that by showing the food industry and the end consumers an innovative approach to create sustainable products," said Niki Karatza, Product Manager of Fooditive.

The ingredient, which is suitable for applications including dairy milk formulations, yoghurt, crèmes, and cheeses, is planned to debut in the market in 2022.
