We offer a versatile line of 100% natural, functional, plant-based texturized proteins and breadcrumbs that provide the food industry with innovative solutions for vegetarian meat analogs and traditional meat products.
Our gluten-free breadcrumbs are made from non-GMO peas and provide an allergen-free alternative compared to traditional wheat-based breadcrumbs. Additionally, gluten-free breadcrumbs can supplement the protein content in plant-based foods while giving excellent crispy and crunchy benefits when used as a coating. They offer a superior, clean flavor profile.
Available in various particle sizes, gluten-free breadcrumbs can be used as a coating in breading and batter applications, providing an superb crunch and crispy texture. In addition, they can be used within a ground product recipe to replace breadcrumbs as a filler or rusk. Gluten-free breadcrumbs are ideal for vegetarian or vegan alternatives to traditional meat products, such as plant-based chicken nuggets, patties, meatballs, etc. When used as a filling, the gluten-free breadcrumbs can bind water and fat and enhance the juiciness of the product. When used dried, their crunchy texture is perfect for gluten-free coatings and produces a homogeneous golden yellow color after cooking.
By formulating gluten-free breadcrumbs into a formed ground meat recipe, food manufacturers can produce a high-quality product with improved sensorial properties and achieve potential cost savings while retaining the juiciness and texture of the meat.
Pea protein is a more sustainably produced protein source with a lower price point compared to animal protein. When incorporated into ground meat products (up to 30%), it can provide both functional and cost savings opportunities for food manufacturers. Gluten-free pea breadcrumbs are ideal not only for plant-based vegetarian recipes but for meat/plant-based hybrid formulations to satisfy the flexitarian market. It is a clean-label, allergen-free solution that helps manufacturers meet the consumer demand for healthier, value-added, sustainable products.
