Fairfield, NJ - A&B Ingredients, a leader in providing unique, clean label, and functional ingredient solutions to the food and beverage industry, announced today that it expanded its line of plant-based, functional ingredients with Texta Feve, textured Faba bean proteins. The new line of clean-tasting textured Faba bean proteins is ideal for plant-based meat products and will be presented at the IFT 2022 Annual Event and Expo, July 10 -- 13, in Chicago, IL.

"The new textured Faba bean proteins add to our comprehensive portfolio of plant protein ingredients and offers our customers an excellent solution for texturizing plant-based meats. Faba beans have a cleaner taste with no lingering legume aftertaste compared to alternatives. This makes Texta Feve a superior product that can be used to create better-tasting products with meat-like texture and improved bite in plant-based meat applications," explained Gil Bakal, Managing Director at A&B Ingredients.

Variety of plant based meat, food to reduce carbon footprint

The new textured Faba bean protein portfolio is well suited for use in meat analogs and plant-based foods, creating a familiar meat-like texture and bite.
