Roquette releases a new line of organic pea ingredients: organic pea starch and organic pea protein. These ingredients are produced at its plant in Portage la Prairie, Man., and supported by peas sourced from organic pea growers in Canada.

According to Jeremy Burks, senior vice-president of plant proteins at Roquette, “From America to Europe, from the field to the plate, we want to provide trusted origin organic ingredients, and farmers are an essential piece of this organic strategy. We know from which farm our organic pea comes from as we are involved all throughout the value chain. This new organic pea line is a milestone of the food revolution to which Roquette is so committed.”

This new organic line is suitable for specialized nutrition, non-dairy or meat alternative markets.
