As the plant-based meat market continues to grow; with more consumers adopting flexitarian, vegan or vegetarian lifestyles, the flavor and food industries are meeting the demand through unique product offerings and innovative taste solutions. To discuss the challenges and opportunities in creating flavors for plant-based meats, Nadji Rekhif, senior flavor specialist at the Nestle Development Center,  will present on the Innovation Stage at Flavorcon 2019.

During his presentation, Rekhif will discuss the two major hurdles in creating appealing plant-based flavors: plant proteins inherit off flavors and the high interaction of flavors with proteins.
