Ingredion recently introduced two new ingredients to their pea protein offerings.
Vitessence Pulse 1853 Pea Protein Isolate and Purity Pea 1002 Pea Starch are produced at Ingredion’s South Sioux City, Nebraska facility. Both products are also sustainably produced at North American farms.
The pea protein isolate offers 85% protein on a dry basis. It may be used to increase protein content across a variety of applications. The native pea starch may be used to improve texture in applications including plant-based cheeses and gelatin-free confectionery to gluten-free baked foods.
According to a recent article on Foodbusinessnews.com, the new pea isolate and pea starch join Ingredion’s portfolio of plant-based proteins and ingredients, which includes the plant protein concentrates and flours produced in Vanscoy, Sask. The addition of the South Sioux City pea protein facility makes Ingredion the first manufacturer in North America to offer “produced in the US and Canada” plant protein isolate, concentrate, flour, and starch products ranging from less than 10% protein to 85% protein on a dry basis, the company said.
“The addition of higher protein pulses capitalizes on our ability to help our customers deliver consumer-preferred food and beverages to global markets,” Jorgen Kokke, executive vice president and president of the Americas at Ingredion told Food Business News. “By combining our expertise and product formulation capabilities with high-quality ingredients, we are well-positioned to be a reliable supplier supporting our customers with breakthrough, innovative plant-based solutions.”
