People’s awareness of healthy eating is increasing. Protein-rich foods provide important nutrients for the human body and ensure the maintenance of elementary functions. Plant-based proteins have long presented a good alternative to animal protein sources for a protein-rich diet. Peas have been increasingly moving to the forefront as a healthy source of protein.
Pea protein isolate contains a high concentration of almost all essential amino acids. Unlike non-essential amino acids, essential amino acids cannot be synthesized by the body. They must, therefore, be provided through our diet. On the one hand, Emsland Group is able to offer a vegan alternative in the field of meat alternatives, mayonnaise, and sports nutrition through the use of Empro® products. On the other hand, it can be used to increase the protein content of various foods. Furthermore, Empro® shows particularly good oil and water binding properties and improves, for example, the texture of baked goods.
Pea proteins, however, cannot only be used in the form of isolates for the protein enrichment of foods, but also as an extrudate. Following this trend, Emsland Group’s Empro® Tex provides a variety of pea protein extrudates. Shape, size, and protein content can be varied with pea protein extrudates. These innovative products can be used, for example, in breakfast products, protein bars, and snacks.
Discover the broad range of uses for our Empro® series in this exciting webinar from Emsland Group.
