Meat alternatives - a new trend in the food industry

Fleischalternativen: dieses Bild zeigt ein vegetarisches Schnitzel

Vegetarian and vegan products are no longer a fad, but have become socially acceptable and are now part of everyday life for many customers. Not only German consumers are looking for plant-based substitutes for meat for ethical, moral, religious or health reasons.  Not only “real” vegetarians and vegans are among the main customers for plant-based meat alternatives, but also so-called flexitarians, that is those whose diet is mainly meat-free.  Increasing environmental awareness, especially among young consumers makes them give up meat temporarily or permanently.

Possible reasons for choosing a vegetarian or vegan diet are:

Animal welfare | Fighting world hunger | Health | Environment protection

Meat-free diet - clarification of terms

Vegetarian and vegan products have triumphantly arrived in our societies.

Meat-free diet has special requirements. It should be balanced and tasty.  However, a meat-free diet does not have to mean sacrifice, which is proven by meat alternatives of the MOGUNTIA FOOD GROUP.


A vegetarian diet is based on plant foods.  It excludes meat, fish and derived products including lard and gelatine.  However, eggs, milk, dairy products and honey are permitted, depending on which type of vegetarianism one chooses.

Depending on whether milk and eggs and their derivatives are consumed or not, vegetarian diet can be further differentiated as follows:  lacto-vegetarian, ovo-vegetarian, ovo-lacto-vegetarian, pescetarian and flexitarian.


Those who choose a vegan diet do not consume animal products of any kind.  The basis for vegan recipes are purely plant products such as vegetables, tofu, agave syrup, soy or oat milk, thus replacing meat, fish, milk, eggs or honey.  Vegan diet strictly rejects the consumption of animal foods or foods with animal components.

Although the choice of foods is clearly limited, vegan dishes can still be colourful and varied.

Of course, they are tailored to the requirements of industrial production – without compromising taste and quality.

Trend product: burger | meatless enjoyment without compromise

veganer/vegetarischer Burger: wir bieten auch Würzungen für fleischlose Alternativen an

Making a meatless burger is not that easy, especially when the target group consists of flexitarians. Expectations of a mouthfeel and taste similar to a ground beef patty are high.  The biggest challenge is the necessary protein content, which is noticeable in the aroma during frying, protein coagulation during biting and protein breakdown substance glutamic acid (umami).  Therefore, protein-rich legumes such as soy or wheat protein, also known as seitan, are best suited for the production of meatless burger patties.

The MOGUNTIA FOOD GROUP offers special blends for the production of vegan or vegetarian patties under the brand FITESSA®.  If required, vegetable ingredients can also be added.

We will be happy to provide you with recipe suggestions, tips and the right product selection for meat-free burger patties.  All products meet the requirements of industrial production.  As a spice specialist, we also produce authentic minced meat seasonings for cevapcici, burger patties and much more – both for minced meat products and their meat-free alternatives.  Discover our minced meat seasonings.

Growing plant-based food market

In order to meet the growing market for plant-based proteins and to react to changes in consumer habits, we have formed an international team of product developers, food technologists, account managers and marketing experts within the MOGUNTIA FOOD GROUP with the aim of expanding and constantly improving our range of meat substitutes and plant-based food.  We develop innovative meat alternatives and offer a wide range of plant-based ingredients tailored to the habits of modern consumers. In addition to meat-free products, consumers are looking for enjoyment, natural taste and the right texture.

Profit with us from the growing market of plant-based meat alternatives and generate additional turnover with a demand-oriented range of products for the growing target group of vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians.

Hybrid products – Best of both worlds

Our product developers are increasingly focusing on flexitarians who want to limit their meat consumption for ethical, ecological or health reasons.

With our hybrid meat consumers can reduce the amount of meat in their meals without the sense of deprivation. This is because hybrid products combine meat with vegetable compounds in a particularly tasty way.  Our innovations offer a new approach to meat consumption. The concept of meat with a large vegetable component can be adapted to burgers, sausages and other products made from minced meat.

And with this, the MOGUNTIA FOOD GROUP not only follows the trend of reducing meat consumption and choosing a balanced, plant-based diet, but also of the so-called food pairing, that is development of new dishes and taste experiences by pairing different ingredients.
