Neutral taste

Tendra® has a neutral taste, which makes it highly suitable for dairy alternative applications. To make a perfect plant-based alternative for ice-cream, neutral tasting ingredients are key. With Tendra® you don’t need to worry about unpleasant aftertaste or smell. You can easily add your favorite flavor, such as vanilla or chocolate without the need of overdosing.

Smooth & creamy texture

What would ice-cream be without a creamy texture and smooth mouthfeel? That’s why it’s called ice-cream, right? Replacing animal-based proteins for plant-based proteins sounds easy, but if you don’t have the right alternative, you won’t succeed creating a smooth and creamy texture. Tendra® Fava Bean Protein Isolate is the hero! Tendra® protein is highly suitable as a replacement for milk-based proteins.

No Increase in viscosity of pre-mix

Viscosity is very important when it comes to forming a pre-mix for ice-cream. Tendra® gives no increase in viscosity, this makes switching to Tendra® as a replacement for animal-based protein easy.
