World Food Processing used SupplySide West to bust a myth—that manufacturers and consumers have to learn to tolerate the taste and texture of “healthy” foods.
In fact, the team that makes non-GMO, organic PURISPea™ says that its pea protein is closer to what people expect from animal proteins, such as whey protein.
World Food Processing showcased two commercially available products from Flapjacked, a Westminster, Colo., customer. They included FlapJacked Mighty Muffins with Probiotics and FlapJacked Protein Pancake and Baking Mixes. The Mighty Muffins also were offered as samples at the World Food Processing SSW booth.
Jennifer Bacon is one of Flapjack’s co-founders.
“We have found that combining whey protein Isolate with pea protein offers easier digestibility in our products. Currently our protein source is split about 50/50,” she notes. “We only use the highest quality ingredients in our products. We have found that many pea proteins on the market source peas from different suppliers at different times of availability and from different countries. With PURISPea, we know the source, it’s non-GMO and we can guarantee it’s quality.”
She adds, “PURISPea performs better than any other pea protein we have tested in our lab. The taste, texture and nutritional data works perfect within our applications. With superior efficacy and taste of PURISPea, we were able to use a higher percentage than we could of its competitors.”
