Chr. Hansen VEGA Culture Kit for fermented plant bases

Thursday, 05 August, 2021 | Supplied by: Chr. Hansen


As dairy-free alternatives to yoghurt, ‘vegurts’, gain traction worldwide, competition continues to grow among producers striving to offer consumers tasty, healthy and sustainable products.

Chr. Hansen has now launched the VEGA Culture Kit, which is specifically developed for fermented plant bases. It enables plant-based innovators to create customised and differentiated features for their products in taste, texture, health and sustainability.

The kit comprises customisable starter cultures, probiotics and bioprotective strains.

Benefits of the kit include: enhanced taste and texture with a choice of starter cultures that can differentially drive flavour and texture in plant-based yoghurts; and probiotic support with VEGA nu-trish blends of cultures, including Chr. Hansen’s Bifidobacterium, BB-12 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus, LGG. These cultures have been designed specifically for use in plant bases. The VEGA FreshQ culture solution is also designed to support a longer shelf life.

The VEGA cultures are produced using ingredients that are dairy-free, contain no GMO ingredients and are free of any animal-derived substances. They are suitable for use in vegetarian, vegan, Kosher and Halal products.
