The plant-based beverages are conquering space on the shelves of supermarkets and establishments, the options of plant-based drinks grow increasingly driven by movements of veganism, by intolerances to animal milk compounds or even by conscious consumption and impact on the environment considering the production chain of milk.
To ensure the substitution of animal milk for plant-based drinks, maintaining some elements is of fundamental importance.
Calcium, one of the main nutrients provided by the consumption of animal milk, must be enriched in order to ensure the intake necessary for the maintenance of vital activities.
Because it is of plant origin, Lithothamnion sp. has high bioavailability, and is therefore an excellent alternative for human consumption. The application of Lithothamnion-derived seaweed calcium improves the nutritional profile, acts on the beverage's stability, and also increases the product's shelf-life. It is a plant-based ingredient!
