PrOatein oat protein is a unique, patented natural protein concentrate from oats that can help manufacturers to meet the fast-growing consumer demand for nutritious, protein-enriched foods and supplements. PrOatein, like the oat grain it comes from, is rich in essential amino acids, including the desirable branched-chain amino acids which are important for muscle growth and recovery. Compared to other isolated proteins, it also has a great taste.
PrOatein has a minimum concentration of 50 % protein. This natural, non-GMO, clean-label protein concentrate is made from locally-sourced, Nordic oats, applying a gentle separation process without the need for solvents or chemicals. Its mild taste and ease of formulation make PrOatein an extraordinary ingredient for foods and supplements for consumers of all ages. It tastes good and is suitable for dairy-free and soya-free diets.
It is also vegan-friendly, tastes good and an excellent alternative to other dairy and vegetable protein sources. All of which makes PrOatein the ideal ingredient for boosting protein content in a wide range of products.
PrOatein is part of the range of oat ingredients produced by Lantmännen, which also includes PromOat oat beta-glucan and Avenacare oat beta-glucan for cosmetics applications.
Protein is an important part of the diet and plays an essential role in the structural and functional components of the body. PrOatein oat protein, like the oat grain it comes from, contains significant amounts of dietary indispensable amino acids, particularly the BCAAs leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which are important for muscle growth and repair in people of all ages. Oat protein contains more SAA and tryptophan than pea protein; more SAA and valine than soy protein; and has more indispensable amino acids than wheat protein. PrOatein also has a great taste compared to other isolated plant proteins.
PrOatein boosts the protein content of many types of products. As a fine, free-flowing powder, PrOatein produces a neutral colour and flavour, while its odour is similar to that of oat bran. As a result, PrOatein easily integrates into recipes, making it accessible for manufacturers to boost their products with the nutritional benefits of protein.
Furthermore, PrOatein is a natural ingredient that can be labelled on ingredients lists simply as “oat protein” and so is attractive to those manufacturers looking to appeal to consumer demand for protein-enriched oat products.
