New Plant Based Substitutes For Salami

The ingredients expert Loryma has created ideas that truly imitate the distinctive visual and tactile features of their meat-based equivalents. These include vegan salami as a hot or cold topping for bread and pizza, as well as alternatives to Italian salami sticks. The structure-giving basis is provided by the wheat texturates of the Lory Tex range, and the choice of wheat-based binder (Lory Bind) ensures optimal binding and heat stability, guaranteeing that the protein level of the finished product is comparable to that of the original. There are many other processing alternatives available, such as fermentation or the inclusion of a plant-based fat substitute, that may be used so that the desired outcomes can be accomplished.

The several types of wheat components each provide their own distinct textures and qualities. For instance, if you want to make vegan salami to use as a topping for pizza, you may use a wheat-based binder from the Lory® Bind line, which will keep the topping stable while the pie is being heated. It is possible to use a creamy fat replacement in order to produce the traditional look of salami, which is characterized by the presence of visible fat inclusions. This is based on Lory® Stab, which is a blend of three different wheat starches, in addition to vegetable oil and water, and it is able to tolerate high temperatures. Not only does the wheat protein included in Lory® Bind provide the recipes an elastic feel, but it also ensures that the nutritional profile is as similar to the one found in the original as is humanly feasible. Because of this, the amount of protein found in salami made from wheat is at least comparable to the amount of protein found in sausages made from cattle.

Authentic outcomes are achieved using a variety of production procedures.

The ideas include a number of different production processes for producing a wheat-based salami that is flawlessly suited to the product that is sought as the final result. One strategy is cooking vegan sausage after first incorporating an acid that may be consumed, such as citric acid, into the flesh of the vegan sausage. The fermentation procedure that uses starter cultures, which is typical in traditional methods of meat preparation, takes more time. Before being cooked, the wheat salami is allowed to develop for a couple of hours with the assistance of the microorganisms. This technique is the most faithful representation of the original taste and texture of the meat product that can be achieved using a substitute.

Egg is often used as a vegetarian meat replacement because it gives the product the desired bite. According to Norbert Klein, Head of Research and Development at Loryma, "however, our meticulously planned mix of numerous wheat constituents yields an authentic outcome, but does so without the use of chemicals originating from animal sources." It is also feasible to adapt these techniques to work with a variety of additional sausage options. For instance, the heat-resistant binder may be used to make vegan chicken breasts or beef jerky without any problems.
