Plant protein-based systems (non-soy) designed to deliver protein fortification in emerging plant-based bar, cereal, and snack applications without negatively impacting texture or shelf life. Delivering a variety of textures while minimizing the dryness, brittleness and hardness over shelf life commonly associated with plant proteins.
This modified whey protein system minimizes bar hardening and extends the shelf life of nutritional bars. It’s an excellent source of high-quality protein that gives bars a clean flavor and a long-lasting, chewy texture.
This unique combination of dairy and plant protein enhances bar functionality, giving them a softer texture, an extended shelf life and a clean flavor profile. It’s a complete protein solution for low-to-moderate protein bars, baked goods and cookies.
These milk protein isolates (MPI) extend the shelf life of nutrition bars and minimize bar hardening. They’re an excellent source of high-quality protein that improves bar texture and provides a clean flavor profile.
Patent-pending pea protein that disperses immediately, is bland for easier flavoring without typical pea notes and offers a smoother mouthfeel than conventional pea protein. Made in the USA from Canadian yellow peas, it delivers a high level of protein, a clean ingredient statement (just label it as “pea protein”), as well as kosher, non-GMO, and gluten free certification. Organic available.
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.
Protein fortification ingredient systems specifically for use in aseptic and hotfill processing, providing exceptional nutritional attributes and functional benefits to high, intermediate and neutral pH beverages. Benefits include superior clarity, less astringency, improved processing with better dispersion, and reduced processing time/costs.
This series offers a full range of functional dairy protein ingredients that improve product processing and flavor, enhance creaminess and texture and support clean label initiatives. OptiSol® 1000 Series solutions are available in rBST free and Grade A options.
