Plant-based trends have been on the rise in recent years, transforming the way people eat and think about food. With a growing awareness of environmental concerns, health benefits, and ethical considerations, plant-based diets have captured the attention of individuals, restaurants, and food companies worldwide. Plant-based alternatives to traditional animal-based products have become increasingly accessible and appealing, offering a wide range of options, from plant-based meats and dairy alternatives to innovative plant-derived ingredients.   Here are some surprising plant-based ingredients beyond proteins. 


AlphaGOS® is a plant-based Galactooligosaccharide (GOS) prebiotic which boosts Bifidobacterium and modulates short chain fatty acid production. It is the sole plant-based GOS available in the market.  It is nade from field peas (Pisum sativum) and supported with human clinical studies. 


Vollagen® is a vegan alternative to collagen produced using a proprietary, multistep fermentation and microencapsulation process. It yields the amino acids in same proportions as human collagen without the hydrolysis processing needed, making them easy to absorb in the body.


Ultimine™ is a line of whole-food minerals, derived from natural fermentation of Koji fungi (Aspergillus oryzae). The minerals are taken up by the fungus through a patented fermentation and harvesting process to yield highly bioavailable minerals.


Biobania® is a plant-based biotin powder derived from the plant Sesbania grandiflora.  Biotin is a commonly used vitamin in a variety of beauty products for hair skin and nails.


Phytodroitin is a plant-based complex that mimics the structure and composition of chondroitin. It contains a specific combination of carefully selected mucopolysaccharide-rich algae extracts and hyaluronic acid.
