What Can You Do With Mycolein?

You can use MycoleinTM to enhance flavour and increase the juiciness of any product - plant-based, alternative protein or meat. The fungi enable a behaviour similar to animal fat. When cooked, the fat is released gradually, melting similarly to animal fat, encapsulating and enhancing flavour. It is even possible to create marbled products identical to meat. The recipe can be tailored to your needs, introducing any desired flavour profile or fortification with Omega 3.

Emulsion Stabilising Technology

Mycolein is the first product derived from Mycorena’s unique emulsion technology, using fungi as a stabiliser. The emulsifying technology entraps the fat, mimicking animal fat cells. Unlike many plant-based alternatives, the fungi help stabilise the emulsion, enabling a melting behaviour similar to animal fat. The technology allows for various applications across different industries tailored to your needs.
