High moisture extrusion is a technique by which plant proteins can be shaped into meat-like products. These can be used as plant-based meat substitutes. Plant-based meat analogues offer an unique way to reduce the environmental footprint of our diet.
Plant protein powder (such as flour or concentrate) is mixed with water and by application of high pressure and temperature a certain degree of friction and shearing is achieved. This leads to fiber formation of the plant protein. The result is a meat-free product with a meat-like texture and bite.
