PROFI, vegetable based high protein composite (HPC), contains all nine essential amino acids in proper proportions. Formulated into a single source food enhancer for ease-of-use, usage rates have been identified for achieving ideal grams of plant protein per serving size within but not limited to cookies, breads, cupcakes, soups, sauces, protein bars, pasta, crackers, veggie burgers and beverages. After two years in development PROFI, especially designed to address the issues of taste and product formulation, can replace soy, dairy and meat as an allergy free, non-GMO, Kosher and Halal protein source. PROFI was also specifically developed to contain a high PDCAAS score, indicating the efficacy of the product protein solution.
Available in two main varieties, PROFI Bake™, gluten-free and non-GMO, makes it ideal for manufacturers to add protein and fiber to many baked goods including muffins, cakes and breads. PROFI Pro™, also gluten-free, can be used to add non-GMO plant protein to small or large serving sizes in food and beverages.
