DuPont wins award for its cultures

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) was awarded second place in the ‘Most Innovative Ingredient of the Year’ category at the Food Ingredients Innovation Award, for its Danisco VEGE cultures line. Launched in South America in February 2019, the culture product line is designed to support the production of fermented plant-based foods and beverages.

Several years of research and development led to the creation of the Danisco VEGE Cultures line, with 11 distinct grains of individual functionality and characteristics. The wide range of strains provides a variety of tastes and textures, meeting the increasing demand from flexitarian, vegetarian and vegan consumers for plant-based fermented foods and beverages.

The product line is safety certified and allergen- and GMO-free, fulfilling the requirements of organic and vegan products. It has also attained Kosher and Halal certifications. The strains are available in freeze-dried formats, providing a sustainable advantage to manufacturers.

“We are very grateful for the recognition. These cultures are a true innovation made possible thanks to DuPont’s expertise in innovation, microbiology, food protection and fermentation, as well as DuPont’s commitment to develop food ingredients for a more sustainable food industry,” said Adriana Apuzzo, regional Dairy Enzymes & Cultures Leader at DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences.

The award ceremony occurred during the Fi South America (Food Ingredients South America) tradeshow in São Paulo.
