DuPont Puts Value into Meat Innovation

DuPont Nutrition & Health invites visitors to IFFA 2013 to test their senses and experience how the company’s recently expanded portfolio is building new opportunities for the meat industry.

The event marks the first demonstration of the combined functionalities of DuPont™ Danisco® ingredients, Solae™ soya proteins and diagnostic systems for food safety and quality assurance. Innovative packaging technology for extending meat product shelf life will also be featured.

With this strong product line-up, DuPont will put a keen focus on improved sensory quality, enhanced nutrition and reliable safety assurance right through the food chain – all showcased via a series of inspirational concepts.

Blind Test
One of the core samples on the company booth will be a new Korean Bulgogi formulation. This will be subject to a blind taste test, where visitors will be asked to evaluate taste, texture and content. The actual content will be revealed during the event.

“Korean Bulgogi was placed no. 23 on the world’s 50 most delicious foods list compiled by CNN in 2011, so we are particularly interested to hear people’s opinion of our new concept,” says Morten Hoffmann Kyed, Senior Group Manager for Meat Applications.

Combined Benefits
Rolling many of the combined portfolio benefits into one, DuPont will also present a better-for-you salami concept – an appealing, reduced-fat snack that will please kids and their parents. The formulation contains texturizing SUPRO® soya proteins, TEXEL® Prism-1 maturation starter culture and the natural antioxidant GUARDIAN™ Rosemary Extract. A GRINDSTED® Meatline emulsifier & stabilizer system enables fat reduction without sensory compromise.

The salami’s multi-layer packaging makes use of the premium sealant DuPont™ Surlyn®, which maintains an appetizing fresh appearance and extends shelf life. Additionally, DuPont Food Diagnostics provide easy-to-use methods for molecular detection, identification and monitoring.

Nutritious Alternative
In a new burger concept, DuPont highlights a nutritious alternative to traditional burgers, where soya supplements the protein provided by meat.

“Several of our concepts are designed to give a good nutritional profile along with premium, indulgent quality,” says Kyed. “This demonstrates some of the significant synergistic benefits our science-driven portfolio can provide.”

Collaboration unlocks the answers science provides and as part of what we call "the Global Collaboratory™” - DuPont is committed to finding new and better ways to feed the world’s growing population.  Opportunities to supplement meat with highly nutritious vegetable proteins are in line with this goal.

DuPont™ Danisco® is the brand for a range of products that help provide enhanced bioprotection, an improved nutritional profile, and better taste and texture with greater cost efficiency and lower environmental impact, meeting the needs of manufacturers of food and beverages, dietary supplements and pet food.
