Brampton, Ont. – For many consumers, their evening meal is where they obtain the most protein each day. Many consumers don’t realize, however, that they need to consume the right amount of high-quality protein at the right times throughout the day. It’s essential for immune health, building muscle mass and keeping energized.
Dealers Ingredients Inc., which is based in Brampton, Ont., offers food processors an easy solution to filling that gap. It’s called Profi and it’s the first complete vegetable protein that offers fibre, too.
Profi contains all essential amino acids in proper proportions. It can replace soy, dairy and meat as a complete vegetable protein source. The ingredient is designed to support immune health, since protein repairs and rebuilds muscles, and it promotes organ and skin health. Profi can also provide a “good to excellent” source of fibre, which helps to promote digestive and heart health and does not cause gastrointestinal disturbances observed with other ingredients containing inulin. Both the plant protein and fibre in Profi also contribute to appetite control and satiety. In addition, Profi is GMO-free. It has a mild clean taste and smooth texture, which can enhance a variety of food products with plant-based protein and fibre.
Profi products include Profi 100, Profi 200, Profi Pro and Profi Bake. Both Profi 100 and Profi 200 have the benefit of cane fibre, a soluble fibre in the form of short-chain fructooligosaccharides that is a gentle, well-tolerated fibre that favourably stimulates the gut microbiota.
Profi 100 is designed for serving sizes less than 100 grams. It is recommended to use 15 grams of Profi 100 per serving in order to achieve six grams of protein and five grams of fibre. It’s ideal for enhancing pasta, crackers and cereals.
Profi 200 is designed for serving sizes greater than 100 grams. It is recommended to use 22 grams of Profi 200 per serving to achieve 12 grams of added plant protein and five grams of added fibre. It is ideal for boosting soups and beverages.
Profi Pro is ideal for adding protein to any application, but without the added fat or allergens from soy or meat and dairy options. It contains a proprietary blend of vegetable proteins. In small serving sizes it is recommended to use nine grams to achieve six grams of added plant protein.
Profi Bake can replace all-purpose flour in all gluten-free, non-GMO baked goods. It’s recommended to use 15 grams per serving to achieve six grams of added plant protein and six grams of fibre.
