In response to the explosive growth of the plant-based protein industry, NP Nutra® has added a new product category to their growing portfolio of premium ingredients specifically featuring plant protein ingredients.
Recent Nielsen data reveals plant-based food sales have risen 20 percent over the last year to more than $3.3 billion. Clearly, plant-based options are no longer just reserved for the small niche of vegan or vegetarian. These outstanding sales figures are driving product developers worldwide to seek out premium plant-based proteins and include them in their innovative functional food, beverage and dietary supplement formulations.
NP Nutra’s Plant Protein category is an extensive list of certified organic ingredients which includes the most popular plant proteins:
- Pea Protein Powder
- Hemp Protein Powder and Hemp Protein Flour
- Brown Rice Protein Powder
- Chia Protein Powder
- Sacha Inchi Protein Powder
In addition to these, NP Nutra® offers a variety of green ingredients which are surprisingly protein-rich, including Alfalfa Grass, Barley Grass, Chlorella (cracked cell), Kale, Matcha, Spinach and Spirulina.
Since it can be challenging for product developers to select from such a wide selection of protein ingredients, NP Nutra® has simplified the process by developing unique proprietary protein blends which can be packaged and used as is or added as a protein boosting ingredient.
Green Balance Alkalizing Blend® is a synergistic formula of concentrated alkaline superfoods which provide a valuable source of naturally occurring phytonutrients, chlorophyll, live enzymes and bioavailable vitamins and minerals.
