MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - Several key members of Canada's emerging plant based food industry today announced the formation of Plant-Based Foods of Canada (PBFA). This new industry organization is aimed at helping support the regulatory and market interests of plant food companies in Canada that make and market vegetarian products that are similar to traditional animal protein products.

Plant-Based Foods will work with governments and leading stakeholders to bring awareness and action to the emerging issues shaping this sector. That includes fostering a modernized regulatory environment that promotes innovation and growth within plant-based foods to provide Canadian consumers with plant-based food choices that are concurrent within contemporary trends.

"Canadians want—and deserve—plant-based food choices that align with current food trends," says David Johnston, Vice President and General Manager of Pinnacle Foods Canada. "Plant-based foods are an important source of protein for many Canadians, and it is important to us that they continue to be a nutritious, delicious, and exciting option for all."

Plant-Based Foods of Canada is comprised of food companies that make and market plant-based products that are part of a combination of or are the main source of proteins by a growing number of Canadians.

"The time has come for the plant-based food industry to build upon its collective voice within Canada," explains Beena Goldenberg, CEO of Hain Celestial Canada. "In the next five to 10 years, we are going to see rapid growth in the interest and consumption of plant-based foods. It's happening already. As industry continues to move into the mainstream, it's critical that it has a voice to accurately represent it and help shape the direction it takes for the benefit of all Canadians."

Consumer notions of what constitutes a good protein source are expanding to include a wider variety of plant-based protein ingredients. Moreover, the desire for health benefits along with variety in the diet, compatibility with vegetarian and vegan lifestyles and concerns about sustainability among the general population are putting the spotlight on plant proteins. Earlier this year, the government of Canada announced an investment of approximately $150 million in the country's plant protein industry through its $950 million Supercluster Initiative.

Founding members of Plant-Based Foods of Canada include: Daiya Foods, Danone, Earth's Own Foods, GreenSpace Brands, Hain Celestial, Pinnacle Foods, Ripple Foods, Lightlife Foods, The Field Roast Company.

Recent Nielsen data shows an 8% increase in sales of meat and dairy alternatives over the past year, to more than $3 Billion. With this increased growth it's clear that the plant-based foods industry is a food industry leader that consumers, food service, and retailers are taking seriously.

Plant-Based Foods of Canada is a division of Foods & Consumer Products of Canada (FCPC) the largest trade association representing food, beverage and consumer goods manufacturers in Canada. The connection to FCPC enables members to leverage the expertise of FCPC on public policy and regulatory issues.

Frutarom Ltd., Israel—Frutarom Food Protection Solutions offers its all-natural, high-antioxidant solution for reducing acrylamides in heat-processed foods, decreasing oxidation and extending shelf life. Canadian food processors will find Frutarom Food Protection solutions at BSA (, now part of Frutarom group.

 High-heat cooking can impart potentially carcinogenic acrylamides at levels that can exceed 1,000 ppb. As of April 11, 2018 new European Union legislation set new “benchmark” levels for the amount of acrylamide in foods for various products. Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2158 of 20 November 2017 establishing mitigation measures and benchmark levels for the reduction of the presence of acrylamide in food.

Frutarom conducted tests on fried potatoes and other snacks applying its all-natural INOLENS 4  and SyneROX HT, tailor made formulations. Both formulations significantly reduced acrylamide concentration in the food matrices. The level of acrylamide was decreased by 60% in the snacks, and more than 90% in the fried potatoes. The research team noted that such high reduction levels are readily attainable for food applications that have very high levels of acrylamide.

The two formulations also significantly improved oxidative stability of snacks and fried potatoes, as indicated by hexanal levels. The performance of INOLENS 4 and SyneROX HT exceeded that of the synthetic antioxidant TBHQ, which is commonly used for frying oil stability improvement. Moreover, these formulations extended frying oil shelf life, also outperforming TBHQ.

“Using these natural formulations in baking, frying applications and other high-heat applications is an ‘all-in-one’ solution that reduces acrylamides while significantly slowing oxidation and rancidity of oils and fats and extending shelf-life,” says Ohad Cohen, General Manager for Frutarom Food Protection Solutions. “They are a preferred choice for ensuring compliance with the new regulations for acrylamide reduction. INOLENS and SyneROX have no impact on flavor, texture, or appearance.”

SyneROX and INOLENS are customized blends of rosemary oil and/or water-soluble extracts in powder and liquid forms, designed to enhance food quality.

“INOLENS and SyneROX portfolio are a natural and cost-effective solution to the acrylamide reduction challenge,” explains Dushka Dimitrijevic, Director of Technical sales and Applications for Frutarom Food Protection Solutions. “They’re heat-stable, easy to use, and have no negative impact on the sensory profile of fried or baked foods. They ensure significant reduction of acrylamides in food products.”

Frutarom Group’s Food Protection Solutions provides advanced, application-specific solutions based on natural extracts for food, pet food, cosmetic, and nutraceutical industries. Its extensive portfolio includes brands such as VivOX®, INOLENS®, AquaROX® and SyneROX®. These product lines have been complemented by the innovative SubSTAR and SubSTAR Complex portfolio for pet food and rendering applications. All of the Food production solutions are available at BSA, in Canada.
