VITESSENCE® TEX Crumbles 102 textured protein - 70000339

Formulate plant-based meat alternatives with a satisfying bite and chew

To win in plant-based meat alternatives, you'll need to meet consumers' high expectations for convincing, meaty bite and texture — while also keeping a clean label that is free of GMOs, gluten and ingredients considered major allergens.

With non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free VITESSENCE® TEX Crumbles 102 textured protein, you can leverage the appeal of peas to create the optimal taste, texture, mouthfeel, nutrition and functionality for winning plant-based meat products.

Bring the power of pea protein to your plant-based meat application

Labeled as pea protein and providing 65% protein (dry weight), VITESSENCE® TEX Crumbles 102 textured protein provides texture, chewiness and firmness to help mimic meat in a variety of products, including: 

  • Vegan patties 
  • Meatballs
  • Nuggets
  • Sausages
  • Crumbles 
  • Chicken/tuna pieces

Get optimal functionality for firm, meaty textures

Traditional plant protein powders often fail at creating a meat-like texture, as these ingredients form a thick dough when formulated into a moisture-containing matrix. But VITESSENCE® TEX Crumbles 102 textured protein is a structured vegetable protein (SVP) that:

  • Hydrates quickly to help ensure optimal bite and firmness in the end product
  • Maintains excellent particle integrity and shape after hydration
