Plant based Proteins
The trend for vegetarian or vegan diet is growing up, thereby a reduce in the consumption of animal products. A shift away from animal products is getting easier with more fortified and nutritious plant-based foods available. Some plant products, such as soy beans and quinoa, are complete proteins, which means that they contain all nine essential amino acids that humans need. Recent medical researches noted that a vegetarian or vegan diet can lower the risk of some diseases, such as certain forms of heart disease and cancer, and may promote weight loss. We offer the following Plant based neutraceutical products to the food manufacturers.
Soybeans serve multiple functions in today’s global food chain. The bean is used as both an edible oil and a source of protein in prepared foods. Soybeans have great potential for human nutrition because of their high level of quality protein, and their unique functional and nutritional properties. Soy protein supplies all nine essential amino acids and provides many functional benefits to food processors. Beyond traditional granola bars, food bars have created niche opportunities in many market categories spanning breakfast, meal replacement and snack bars. Globally, soybeans are a key ingredient in thousands of food products; they provide a complete protein, a healthy fat and valuable phytonutrients. The main functional properties of soy proteins that can help develop functional and nutraceutical foods are: hydrating capacity, rehydration, solubility, dispersibility, colloidal stability, gelation, emulsification, acid coagulation, foaming and adhesion/cohesion. Additionally, soy proteins can be applied as a fat substitute in items such as meat, fish, milk, cereal-based products and infant formula.
