Parabel won the FIE Innovations Award in the Growth Category, for their Novel LENTEIN Plant Protein. LENTEIN is a plant protein that comes from the world’s smallest flowering plant, Lemnaceae, commonly called the Water Lentil or Duckweed. It grows on top of still water all around the world and has been eaten by animals and humans in East Asia for a long time. Parabel is the first company to develop an open hydroponic system to grow, process and commercialize the plant. Barentz is the global distributor of LENTEIN plant protein.

LENTEIN Complete is a whole food ingredient containing 40 – 50% protein and 35% dietary fibres. Very popular for nutritional beverages such as meal replacements and sports protein powders, it also fortifies snacks and bars. Because of its high chlorophyll content, it has a mild, pleasant green taste and colour. The crop is minimally processed, without chemicals, which maximizes digestibility and bioavailability of the nutrients.

LENTEIN protein contains higher levels of Essential Amino Acids and BCAA’s than other plant proteins and has an amino acid profile similar to whey protein. The protein is also very digestible with a typical PDCAAS of 0.93.  It’s free of common food allergens such as soy and gluten. LENTEIN Complete also contains good levels of Omega 3 – ALA and other macro and micro nutrients
