The clean flavor profile allows companies to formulate across a range of applications, according to Ingredion. Pulse-based ingredients may boost protein levels in such high-moisture applications as dairy, yogurt, pudding, cheese, beverages, nutritional mixes and smoothies. They may do the same for such low-moisture applications as baked foods, snacks, cereal, bars, pasta, batters and breading applications.
The Vitessence Pulse CT protein concentrates containing peas or faba beans contain 55% to 60% protein on a dry basis. The Homecraft Pulse CT flours containing pea or lentil offer different levels of fiber, starch and protein. The flours are naturally gluten-free and may boost the protein and fiber levels in gluten-free baked foods.
