Ultra-performance proteins

We call it ultra-performance. They’ll call it ultra-tasty.

Advance nutrition with even better tasting pulse proteins and flours

Consumers are more likely to try brands with claims that increase healthy perception, such as protein, plant-based and gluten free. Plus, we know sustainability has an impact on what consumers choose to purchase.1 To win repeat shoppers, your product needs to deliver what consumers want, along with an uncompromised experience that meets taste, texture and mouthfeel expectations.

Now, with ultra-performance plant protein concentrates and flours produced by Ingredion, you can add the good-for-you benefits of pulse ingredients with unrivalled taste and functionality to create delicious, satisfying plant-based products — to grow consumer loyalty.

Provide next-level performance and taste

Ultra-performance proteins enable you to create plant-based food and beverages without the raw plant flavour, bitter taste or uncontrolled microbial levels inherent in dry-milled pulse products.2

Manufactured by Ingredion in North America

With ultra-performance proteins, you can:

  • Expand your reach in more applications where the inherent flavour of pulses was previously an issue, such as dairy and alternative dairy
  • Achieve higher grams of plant protein in bakery, snacks, pasta and batters and breadings by using pulses at a higher use level without impacting flavour
  • Now use pulses in instant and RTE/RTD products, where low microbial levels are a must

Ingredion’s plant proteins recognised for sustainability excellence

Our ultra-performance line of plant-based protein solutions has been named the Best Plant-Based Sustainability winner during the 2022 World Plant-Based Awards. This better tasting, more sustainable product line provides great versatility in a variety of applications.

Keep the nutrition, lose the off-notes

Ultra-performance proteins start with pulses, which are rich in protein, fibre and many micronutrients. Our proprietary physical process yields a clean flavour profile — while also keeping the macro- and micronutrient content so important to label claims.

Clean label with a sustainability story

Ultra-performance proteins are created with a physical process that does not use chemicals or additives. Pulses are naturally non-GMO, gluten free and do not require allergen labeling. Plus, the pulses are responsibly farmed and sourced in North America, boosting sustainability for advantages everyone can feel good about.
