Pulse proteins — a force of nature

The future of protein is plant-based ­— and pulses lead the way. These nutritional wonders are rich in protein and fiber, free of GMOs and low in allergenicity. They enable clean labels and on-trend claims that set your products apart and strengthen their appeal, especially for consumers moving away from soy and wheat protein.

That's why Ingredion’s ever-growing portfolio of plant-based proteins includes isolates, concentrates and flours made exclusively from non-wheat and non-soy-based ingredients like peas, lentils, faba beans, chickpeas and more.

And it's why we've invested in new manufacturing facilities for safe, sustainable plant protein sourcing and processing. By ensuring consistent quality and reliable performance, we're making pulse flours and proteins easy to work with — so you can produce products with great taste, texture and appearance.
