Lisa Ronquest-Ross shared some insights from the latest consumer research study on meat and meat alternatives with low-income groups in South Africa. She also explained how technologies such as masking flavours can support the development of tastier products made from alternative proteins as well as the research programme MANE is conducting in the area of the protein transition in terms of the sensory description of off flavours as well as the molecular interactions of proteins and flavours.
