Currently to replace cow's milkplant analogues made from soy or coconuts are used. These substitutes have a significantly different taste and texture than natural milk of animal origin. Impossible Foods, a renowned plant-based meat producer, is trying to remedy the situation. The company announced significant advances in the development of a natural milk analogue and an additional $ 700 million for further research.
The company presented a milk prototype to reportersplant-based at the online conference. CEO Pat Brown noted that the company plans to ensure that the consumer cannot distinguish analog from natural milk either in taste or in structure.
As an example, the possibility of using milk created by Impossible Foods in coffee brewing was demonstrated.
Traditional soy or coconut milk is notallows mixing with hot liquid, it coagulates and precipitates. Meanwhile, the Impossible Foods prototype behaves like natural cow's milk and produces a delicious froth in a cup of hot coffee.
Impossible Foods is currently planning forto double the research team working on a milk prototype and to accelerate the creation of a product indistinguishable from natural. The exact time to market the product has not yet been announced.
