Looking for a plant-based butter alternative that is 100% butterlike, 100% additive free and up to 3x more sustainable? Look no further!
MIMETIC is Puratos’ best plant-based butter alternative. It is a unique, plant-based specialty fat allowing chefs to create deliciously tasting bakery and patisserie goods with the same melting experience as butter but much easier to work with and more cost efficient than butter. To replace butter AND to upgrade margarine made products (1-1 replacement). It results from years of R&D and bakers’ expertise and know-how.
Puratos has conducted a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to determine the environmental impact Mimetic compared to the impact of dairy butter. Using the ‘Product Environmental Footprint’ methodology, which is adopted and supported by the European Union, data was gathered from the entire value chain of Mimetic – from raw material until end of life – and assessed over diverse environmental impact categories including: climate change, water scarcity, land use, and numerous other aspects, covering all the main impacts of human activity on the planet.
This PEF method allows a score to be calculated that is expressed in micro points, making it possible to objectively compare the impact made by products within the same category.
The results of the LCA show that Mimetic’s environmental impact is almost 3 times lower than that of dairy butter.
Main contributing factors to Mimetic’s better performance are lower CO2 and methane emissions (climate change), land use per kilogram of product as well as water usage.
If up to 40% of a recipe is fat, choosing the right fat for your creations is key. Mimetic is a unique combination of carefully selected ingredients (vegetable oil and sourdough) and a lot of formulation know-how.
It is available in sheet format as well as in industrial formats.
"Laminated baked goods made with MIMETIC keep fresh longer on the shelf – validated by an export sensory panel on four different freshness parameters versus two alternative lamination fats."
