Most vegan converts will unanimously agree on the fact that cheese remains one of the most challenging foods to sacrifice when shifting to a more plant-based lifestyle. While consumers are actively trying to reach for more non-animal derived alternatives, they are resistant to compromise on the sensory experience provided by their dairy counterparts.

Afriplex’s team of innovative scientists has worked on the development of concept solutions for a range of different cheese varieties, each with its unique set of organoleptic and sensory challenges. Knowledge and experience in the pharmaceutical field has also assisted in guiding the developers to incorporate African botanical ingredients into these cheese concepts for added functionality such as natural colour or flavouring.

Whether looking to develop a cheese alternative that can crumble, melt or spread, Afriplex can assist with all the innovative ingredient solutions and application expertise you need to tap into this global mega-trend.
