Use pulse-based protein alternatives to deliver healthy, great tasting food

Plant-based eating continues to be a trending hot topic globally, driven by healthier and cleaner eating, sustainability, and animal welfare. 

Veganism has gone mainstream, experiencing a +44.8% growth (%CAGR 2013-2017) in new product launches globally. 1 Closer to home, number of products labelled ‘vegan’ in Australia has grown by 92% in the past 2 years, while the vegan/vegetarian population in China has reached more than 50 million. 2

It is clear that plant-based foods are in demand and appeals to a broader consumer audience as we see new segments such as snacks, bakery, and dairy alternatives leading new product innovations in APAC.

Sustainably sourced from chickpea, faba bean, yellow lentil and yellow pea (commonly known also as broad beans) Ingredion’s wide range of pulse flours and protein concentrates are suitable for a variety of applications.

Naturally gluten-free and based on plant protein, our pulse proteins can be used to enrich a wide range of new and differentiated products from bakery products, snacks and cereals, pasta, batters and breadings to meat substitutes. Ingredion also offers deflavoured versions of pea and faba bean pulse protein concentrates for further ease of formation.
