QExtend’s unique proteins can replace 25% of meat or fat
Meat prices are rising, and meat consumption is growing. Yet there is also a need to reduce our carbon footprint. This combination of opposing factors challenges us to come up with innovative solutions. That’s why Sonac has developed QExtend Pork PF12 and QExtend Beef PF12: patented products, consisting 100% of animal protein. QExtend PF12 replaces up to 25% of meat or fat without loss of quality and with the benefit of creating a juicier and more cost-beneficial product.
An innovative solution to your meat puzzle[--productleafletbeef--]
QExtend PF12 represents a radically new solution for the meat industry. Because it is a protein fiber, it can replace meat and fat without sacrificing quality in the end product. It is made by a patented process, and was only introduced in 2019.
Its unique advantages are:
- 100% beef or pork origin, in frozen form
- Improved juiciness and mouthfeel
- Significant cost price reduction
- Sustainable ingredient; lower carbon footprint
- Easy to apply; no additional process steps required
- Zero loss of volume through one-on-one meat replacement
QExtend replaces meat or fat up to 25% without loss of quality![--productleafletpork--]
This bold statement has been proven to be true in a blind-tasting experiment conducted among visitors of Anuga 2019. No significant difference was noticed when QExtend replaced meat or fat in hamburgers and salami. Most people just couldn't tell the difference.
