Plant-based innovation for new markets and a wider range of consumer groups

More and more consumers are committing to a lifestyle free from animal products and are therefore looking for plant-based alternatives that do not compromise on taste or texture. A larger variety of products is just as important as an experience that appeals to all the senses and matches the taste profiles of conventional dairy products.

We are developing the next generation of plant-based dairy products, which impress with both their sensory properties and their nutritional profile. We can do this thanks to our expertise in plant-based ingredients – from raw materials and bases to individual ingredients and complete all-in-one systems.

Let us work together to develop innovative plant-based products and shape the future of nutrition.

Oats are one of the most nutritious materials for making plant-based products and an ideal source of protein and fibre. Döhler offers various oat ingredients for developing plant-based applications: from beverages and barista products, through spoonable yoghurt alternatives, baked goods and confectionery, all the way up to savoury applications such as spreads or plant-based alternatives to cheese or creams. The broad portfolio of oat products includes a huge variety of product variants, from extracts and pastes to powders.

Our range of oat extracts, for example, supplies high-quality proteins and is pleasantly sweet and deliciously creamy. Our product variants stand out thanks to the different levels of intensity of the characteristic oat taste and are also available in the following qualities:

  • Organic

  • Plant-based beverages (pure and flavoured) and barista products
  • Desserts and yoghurt alternatives (fermented products)
  • Plant-based ice cream creations
