If you haven’t heard about the protein trend in food yet, then you’ll hear about it from us now at the latest. Proteins are playing an increasingly important role, and not only for athletes. No, most consumers, even the more leisurely among us, have understood that proteins are just as important for our daily lives as drinking enough water. In combination with the increasing enthusiasm for plant-based foods, plant-based proteins are accordingly becoming more and more in the spotlight. We at Falcone Specialities have understood this and are constantly expanding our portfolio of plant-based protein powders.

Goals

Together with our partners, we focus on the market development and demand to expand our offer where necessary. The goal is to offer you the best solution for your application and to support you in plant-based protein enrichment. So that your recipe is improved and the nutri-score of your products is optimized.

Description

Plant proteins are concentrated proteins from plants in powder form. Mostly the seeds, nuts or beans are the protein giving part of the plants. The most common plant proteins you will find in our store are: Pea, Rice, Pumpkin, Sunflower, Wheat and Field Bean protein. The protein content varies from 45% (e.g. sunflower protein) to 80% (pea and rice protein). Depending on the application and need, it makes sense to use a plant protein alone or in combination.

Application

The plant proteins can be used in a variety of ways. Whether you want to create a simple protein bun, a crunchy muesli, protein-rich pasta or your vegan schnitzel needs a more diversified protein mix – you can’t go wrong with our portfolio of plant-based protein powders. With the use of plant protein powders, you increase, among other things, the Nutri-Score and, for example, in the Baked goods, your product will experience a longer shelf life or freshness, thanks to the increased water binding.
