ingredion_416x416Ingredion has partnered with AGT Foods to create four new additions to its variety of protein-rich pulse proteins and flours, along with new lines of faba bean protein concentrate, pea protein concentrate, pea flour, and lentil flour.

The new pulses feature a clean flavour profile, enabling manufacturers to formulate across a broader range of applications more easily, Ingredion said, without having to compromise on flavour or sacrifice taste. The new lines will also help to address growing consumer demand for nutritious, protein-packed foods and beverages.

Ingredion and AGT Foods’ pulse products will also help manufacturers to meet clean-label trends in high-moisture applications, such as dairy, yogurts, puddings, cheeses, beverages, nutritional mixes and smoothies, while boosting protein levels and allowing manufacturers to use vegetable-based proteins instead of animal-based equivalents. Similar benefits can also be achieved when using clean-taste pulses at a higher inclusion level in low-moisture applications, such as baked goods, snacks, cereals, bars, pastas, batters and breading applications.

The products being introduced by the two companies consist of Vitessence Pulse CT 3602 faba bean protein concentrate, Vitessence Pulse CT 1552 pea protein concentrate, Homecraft Pulse CT 1203 pea flour and Homecraft Pulse CT 2201 lentil flour.

Ingredion’s Vitessence Pulse CT proteins feature two new proteins that contain 55-60% protein on a dry basis and are derived from pea or faba bean. The clean-taste pulse proteins can be used to enrich a wide range of new and differentiated products to meet consumer demand for products that are high in protein and fibre, and derived from vegetable-sourced ingredients, Ingredion said.

The Homecraft Pulse CT flours include two new flours made from pea and lentil. These pulse-based flours offer different levels of fibre, starch and protein to meet a variety of food manufacturers’ needs in a wide array of applications. Homecraft Pulse CT flours are naturally gluten-free and offer a healthy alternative to traditional and other gluten-free flours, enabling the development of gluten-free bakery products while boosting the protein and fibre levels, the Illinois-headquartered firm continued.

“Clean-taste Vitessence Pulse CT proteins and Homecraft Pulse CT flours offer manufacturers a wide variety of ingredient solutions to help address consumer demand for enhanced protein products that are vegetable-based, gluten-free, non-GMO, vegetarian, sustainably sourced and taste great,” said Igor Playner, vice-president of innovation and strategy North America for Ingredion Incorporated.

“Interest in vegetable-based ingredients is skyrocketing, and Ingredion’s clean-taste protein concentrates and pulse-based flours make it possible for manufacturers to stay on trend while expanding new and existing product lines.”

Ingredion is an ingredients company that produces sweeteners, starches and exclusive ingredients from plant resources. The company supplies solutions for nearly 60 industry sectors across the globe, and provides for over 40 countries.
