Re-Inventing Plant-Based Beverages

See How To Create Delicious Plant-Based Beverages

Good news, new plant-based drink launches were up 2.8% in 2020* compared to in 2019, according to Mintel. And a recent Innova Consumer Survey indicated that the top four reasons for considering plant-based alternatives were health, diet variety, sustainability and taste. That means that when creating plant-based beverages it is more important than ever to make sure its not just healthy with a clean label but it also tastes good.

At Edlong, we’ve been the industry experts in dairy taste since 1914 and we’ve been doing plant-based dairy flavors since the ’80s, before it was trendy. We have experience working with bases from soy and cashew to quinoa and oat—you name it—to create creamy, smooth, and delicious foods and beverages, including those that are completely vegan.

We’ve developed three Plant-Based Beverage dry mixes. They demonstrate how Edlong natural flavors play a critical role in neutralizing the native off notes common to plant proteins, like bitterness and earthiness. Each mix is made with a combination of pea and rice protein that provide a complete amino acid profile, with a PDCAAS score of 1.0.

Our tasting kit includes three samples:

  1. An unflavored sample;
  2. A sample with masking flavor;
  3. A sample with both masking flavor and our signature Edlong® Sweet Spot flavor to impart the inherent sweetness of dairy in this plant-based product.

We’ll also included two flavor samples to try out in your own product development!

With more than 250 dairy-free and vegan flavors, we deliver on authentic taste and provide the functional benefits of dairy where it’s missing. We’re looking forward to sharing our expertise for your next beverage product. We’ll bring our culinary focus, our creativity, our innovation, and our
extensive experience with plant-based applications to enhance your R&D, expedite your development process, and optimize taste.
