Entry of the original url for the firm immediately shifts to - company renamed as Lypid - defined as developing a vegan fat with a rich meaty mouthfeel that can replace animal fat to elevate alternative proteins - with the firm described as "Making alternative food without compromise. Our secret sauce: a sustainable, healthy and tastier fat alternative'.
