The UK market for meat free foods is experiencing exponential annual growth. Interest in vegetarian and vegan products shows no sign of slowing down, as retail sales are expected to increase to £658m by 2021 . Another product range we work with or recommend to our customers is the Dupont Bind range of methyl cellulose products, which have been produced to meet the variety of vegan meat analogue products being demanded by the market. Bind 250, for instance, has been developed for hot eating products, whilst Bind 092 and Bind 112 developed to allow for cold eating as well as hot eating products. These products give functional properties which mirror egg albumin in terms of structure, moisture binding but no allergenic.
The global market size for the gluten free products is projected to grow at a CAGR 8.1% 2020- 2025, projected to reach USD 8.3 billion by 2025 . For the Gluten Free bakery market, in particular the bread market, Dupont has the Wellence Gluten Free 321, which is designed to allow for leavening of the dough to obtain crumb structure and volume comparable to wheat bread.
