Nestl? to partner with Corbion for the development of microalgae-based ingredients for plant-based products - Bio-based News -

Nestl? has entered into a partnership with Corbion to develop the next generation of microalgae-based ingredients, enabling the company to deliver sustainable, tasty and nutritious plant-based products.

Microalgae ingredients?have several advantages, as they are a vegan source of protein, healthy lipids and various micronutrients. In addition, the production of microalgae has a low carbon, land and water footprint.

Stefan Palzer, Nestl? Chief Technology Officer says, “We are actively exploring the use of microalgae as an alternative protein and micronutrient source for exciting plant-based products. Through the partnership with Corbion, we will be able to use great-tasting, nutritious microalgae-based ingredients to innovate across our different product categories.”

By combining Corbion’s microalgae and fermentation capabilities with Nestl?’s expertise in the development of plant-based products, the two companies aim to produce and commercialize microalgae-based ingredients rich in protein and micronutrients. They will collaborate to improve the functionality, taste and nutritional profile for usage in different types of products.

Nestl?’s plant-based portfolio currently includes various beverages such as almond-, coconut- and oat-based creamers and coffee mixes, non-dairy ice cream, as well as a range of pea and soy-based meat alternatives and prepared dishes.

“We are excited to partner with Nestl? to develop the next generation of algae-based ingredients,” said Marc den Hartog, Executive Vice President Innovation Platforms at Corbion. “Corbion has already demonstrated the value of algae in several high-value food and feed applications. This new protein partnership with Nestl? has the potential to open important avenues for algae-based products into large global markets.”

Based in the Netherlands, Corbion is a global market leader in lactic acid, lactic acid derivatives and a leading company in emulsifiers, functional enzyme blends, minerals, vitamins and algae ingredients.
