At Plant Based World in New York, late last year, it was evident that the plant-based market is becoming increasingly segmented and that alternatives to coffee cream represent one vigorous growth area.
Plant-based coffee creamer introductions grew at a rate of 46% from 2016 to 2021, according to Innova Market Insights’ tracking data. In particular flavored items such as hazelnut, cinnamon, cheesecake, and coconut, are popular.
This is why Planteneers is pleased to introduce a new stabilizing system from the fiildDairy NEC series The system consists of special emulsifiers and hydrocolloids. Based on various plant-based sources—such as oat, coconut or almond drink—the final products have a creamy texture and high whitening power.
They also are extremely stable in hot beverages, just like conventional coffee cream. They also can be flavored as well. Thus, these new coffee creamers provide additional sales motivation in food retail and in the away-from-home market.
