The essential fat ingredient to render meatless food options deliciously irresistible
HYphat is a plant-based fat ingredient that mirrors the visual and sensory properties of traditional animal-derived fats.
Created using Optimized Foods proprietary mycelium scaffold and technology, it is a sustainable, cost-efficient,
tunable and more nutritious fat ingredient, perfect for both alt-protein and plant-based products.
This 100% plant-based fat ingredient reflects the sensory experience and visual likeness of animal fat. When cooked, HYphat slowly melts, mirroring the melt-in-your-mouth experience and texture associated with traditional fats.
Our novel mycelium and fat encapsulation technology allows us to tune the visual and sensory properties of HYphat, enabling us to adjust size, color, and texture for specific end uses and desired attributes.
It also adds to the sensory advantages as it allows for the slow release of fat during cooking, contributing to the juiciness and palatability of the final product.
