Plant-based beverages are on the rise and the Growing Greener food trend featured in our Trend Commentary continues to grow. Consumers are looking for:
The product category "milk alternatives" is a rapidly expanding market – especially with the raw material oats. That's why IMCD has formulated a vegan, lactose-free oat drink base with our partners' high-quality raw materials. Ask for the recipe and see our IMCD trend concept for yourself.
Our oat drink base allows an individual expansion of the basic recipe with vitamins, minerals, flavours and colourings. Together with you, we develop your products such as vegan chocolate drinks or lactose-free sports drinks entirely according to your wishes and without compromising on taste, colouring and mouthfeel.
The oat drink base should be in no way inferior in colour and consistency to the animal product and be usable as a versatile base for milk alternative drinks without a dominant oat flavour.
Oat drinks that meet current consumer demands and make a vegan diet possible are a challenge for manufacturers. To optimally achieve the creamy consistency and sweet taste of milk-based drinks, we use high-quality enzymes from our partner DSM.
