Our new organic clean label alternatives will make it possible for the food industry to develop and produce new plant-based products. Our textured proteins aim to be leading in functionality and are available in various forms to meet customer demands. Our organic textured proteins from peas are suitable as a meat analogue or extender, but they can also be used in other vegan and vegetarian products where a clean label product is the aim.

As humans we need good quality proteins in our diet that have been produced in a sustainable way. Leguminous plants – like peas– from organic farming is certainly a good solution. Pea protein has a good amino acid composition and have a naturally high protein content, and biological nitrogen fixation in the root system is the most efficient way to produce protein. In contrast producing protein from grain (wheat, rice etc) – which has relatively low protein content – creates huge side streams of starch with little value.
Vestkorn ingredients – Good for you, good for the planet.
