Textured pea protein offers an innovative solution in creating nutritionally rich products with improved texture. Once rehydrated, textured pea protein simulates the texture and mouthfeel of meat.
The unique benefit of textured pea protein lies in its granule size. Its small granule size and fibrous appearance make it ideal for plant-based ground-meat applications and vegan sausages and patties. It is specifically known to enhance the juiciness of products and mimic the sensation of biting into the meat.
Our 100% natural textured pea protein fulfills an array of market demands. While it is ideal in plant-based and vegan markets, it is also used in meat-based markets and can be seen in applications such as ground meat, burgers, shepherd's pies, lasagna, stuffings, and more. The nutritional benefits of textured pea protein and its functionality in different applications will enhance the product value.
Textured pea protein is elastic and has a high water retention capacity. These qualities are beneficial to food formulators since textured protein can easily be formed and molded into different shapes. Another benefit of implementing textured pea protein into products is the simplicity of preparation; whether it is grilled, baked, or microwaved, the finished product will yield the desired mouthfeel guaranteed to satisfy any customer.
Textured pea protein is high in protein and low in lipids. The protein/lipid ratio is beneficial to the health-conscious consumer, as it prevents cardiovascular diseases and meets the recommendations on obesity control.
We offer a wide range of textured plant proteins made from peas, Faba beans, and pea and wheat combination.
