The Challenge

In early 2020, Xinova is looking to improve the texture of alternative meat products, specifically burger patties, by developing new ingredients and by identifying improved processing methods.

Recreating the fibrous structure of meat in plant-based alternatives is a high priority challenge. Existing methods, such as high-moisture extrusion, still fail to achieve the characteristic microstructure of meat. 

The Opportunity

Join the Xinova network now as part of a select group of innovators and, in 2020, become involved as we:

  • Explore novel approaches to improve the assembly of plant proteins into desirable, fibrous, meat-like matrices.
  • Identify or improve processes to add hierarchical structure to plant proteins without adding off-flavors.
