New product from Ingredion meets big trends in food

Ingredion has expanded its range of plant-based ingredient solutions to meet increasing consumer demand for protein-rich products.

Derived from peas, the new VITESSENCE® Pulse 1803 protein isolate contains a minimum of 80 percent protein, supporting manufacturers of e.g. meat and dairy alternatives, baking mixes or snacks in making front-of-pack
claims such as “high in protein”.

Attractive properties and high quality standards

Ingredion’s VITESSENCE® Pulse 1803 protein is characterized by a smooth, creamy texture and a flavor profile that is low in raw and green notes. It is
highly soluble with excellent emulsification, water-binding and gelification properties versus other concentrates.

“The interest in plant-based products and ingredients continues to dominate food and beverage trends,” says Severine Bensa, Head of Regional Growth Platform, Marketing, at Ingredion EMEA. “The launch of VITESSENCE® Pulse 1803 protein underlines our commitment to accelerating plant protein production globally. The protein enables manufacturers to create high-protein products that meet and exceed their customers’ expectations. It also supports those looking to make ‘vegetarian’ and ‘vegan’ claims and is naturally gluten-free.”

The pea protein isolate is part of Ingredion’s growing line of plant protein solutions and is backed by the company’s research and expertise in plant protein, ensuring that ingredients are closely monitored throughout the supply chain and meet high standards for safety, quality and consistency.
