BevEdge™ Whey Protein A-220W

This revolutionary ingredient makes berry and citrus flavored protein powdered mixes possible for the first time. Using our patent-pending BevEdge technology, this pre-acidified whey protein isolate uses no lecithin, yet mixes more easily than soy or sunflower lecithin in high acid RTMs. Its larger particle size improves flowability, helping eliminate costly slowdowns or production stoppages. A clean label solution with excellent high acid flavor expression and no unsightly cloudiness typical of high acid RTM mixes, this ingredient creates opportunities for new SKUs and new types of protein powders. Label simply as whey protein isolate, citric acid.

Grains & Seeds

Our non-GMO Grain & Seed solutions are free of chemicals, allergens and gluten, and our specialized processes—from milling to heat treatment—help create beverages with better functionality, safety, and stability.
