4CHOICE - live cultures and solutions for plant-based products
The range of cultures for plant-based cultured products intended for vegan, vegetarian, and lactose intolerant consumers
The demand for lactose-free or plant-based foods and drinks is constantly increasing, as is the demand for alternative products to the classic milk or yoghurt of animal origin. 4Choice is the new Sacco System range of cultures composed of cultures, free of known allergens and products of animal origin, suitable for vegan products.
The cultures of the 4Choice range are perfect for plant-based fermented products and drinks based on pulses, cereals, coconut, nuts and drupes, which ensure texture, flavour and aroma development.
All the range of lactic cultures 4Choice are naturally lactose-free and certified in accordance with the demand for ingredients without allergens, without soy, and without GMOs according to the VLOG "Ohne Gentechnik".
The 4Choice range ensures a controlled and uniform production of fermented products of plant origin of each type (set, stirred, high protein, drink or diluted) and are available in both versions lyophilized (Lyofast) and frozen (Cryofast).
The 4Choice cultures range for plant-based fermented products are designed to support product developers of plant-based cultured products:
Starter cultures: for plant-based spoonable and drinkable fermented specialities. Developed to improve the level of viscosity and guarantee good performance during fermentation.
Mild starter cultures: to ensure a production with less sugar and allow low post-acidification during the shelf life.
Adjunct cultures: effective solutions to improve the sensory profiles of plant-based fermented products, limiting the use of ingredients often perceived as artificial.
Mesophilic starter cultures: solutions made to expand the portfolio of fermented products of vegetable origin, allowing you to dictate the trends in your market and customise the taste of your products.
4Protection cultures: special protective food cultures to control and preserve the finished product from alterations, naturally preventing the development of unwanted microorganisms.
Hypoallergenic probiotics: solutions that guarantee the creation of a healthy, hypoallergenic product, which combines the beneficial properties typical of probiotic bacteria
Tailor-made solutions: specific crops of customised cultures for plant-based fermented products, for a finished product exactly as you want it!
