The demand for protein is on the rise among consumers and now is the time to capitalise on this growing trend.
Pulses, including dried peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas, are an incredibly rich source of protein. These nutritional powerhouses are also high in dietary fibre, rich in micronutrients, vegan and gluten-free.
With our HOMECRAFT® Pulse 3105 faba bean flour and VITESSENCE™ Pulse 1803 pea protein isolate, you can add protein and fibre to cereals and snack foods, replace costly eggs in baked goods and extend texture in meat products, while boosting health appeal. What’s more, they’re a more sustainable choice than animal proteins.
Using pulses in your products will help you to achieve success in key consumer trends such as
- Higher protein diets
- Gluten-free while improving structure and colour
- Vegetarian and Vegan
