Smart Solutions for the Future of Protein
Firmenich’s Smart Protein portfolio of flavor ingredients address customer needs in alternative proteins. This portfolio has been designed to perform in a range of protein bases while addressing the declaration challenges of cleaner and more transparent labelling. We enable you to create vegetarian and vegan alternatives to traditional meat and dairy based products in savory, sweet and beverages. We can support you in creating healthy and memorable eating experiences beyond current flavor boundaries where animal derivatives are no longer ‘center of plate.’
Why Smart?
Why Smart?
‘Green’ or ‘alternative’ protein are general terms used by the food industry to describe proteins that are not derived from traditional meat or dairy sources.

Our approach is different. We are not just looking at how to make pea or soy proteins palatable, instead we are looking at the challenge of using alternative proteins holistically. Our solutions focus on the total eating experience to address all product development needs, which we feel is the “smart” way.

For the past 5 years, Firmenich has conducted cross-category research, working with external partners, internal experts and new acquisitions, to develop a range of tools and technologies that address the primary challenges associated with taste in non-animal protein including off-notes, flavor binding and release, succulence, texture control, and ingredient interactions during processing. We are creating solutions regardless of application, including vegetarian and vegan options that address the most important element of any food or beverage: taste. Taste remains the most important driver of consumer preference.
