So what?

Motif uses prolamin technology to improve foods such as cheese and meat to mimic authentic textures and consistencies that is similar to the ‘real’ thing. Through this, they expect to close the gap in taste and texture that exists between foods and their plant based counterparts.

Motif’s fundamental goal is to make “plant-based foods that consumers want to eat more of and would be willing to use as replacements for animal products.”
