Parabel Innovations Award Finalist at Fi Europe For Novel LENTEIN Plant Protein.

LENTEIN Complete is a whole food ingredient containing 40 – 50% protein and 35% dietary fibre. Very popular for nutritional beverages such as meal replacements and sports protein powders, it also fortifies snacks and bars. Because of its high chlorophyll content, it has a mild, pleasant green taste and colour. The crop is minimally processed, without chemicals, which maximizes digestibility and bioavailability of the nutrients.

LENTEIN protein contains higher levels of Essential Amino Acids and BCAA’s than other plant proteins and has an amino acid profile similar to whey protein. The protein is also very digestible with a typical PDCAAS of 0.93.  It’s free of common food allergens such as soy and gluten.

LENTEIN Complete also contains 38/55% DV of Omega 3 for Males/Females and more than 15 mg of Lutein per serving!

Sustainability is at the core of Parabel’s operations. The process recycles 98% of the water and in certain areas, such as Florida, it can be water and carbon neutral. There is no need for arable land and the aquafarm can transform marginal, non-arable land into productive areas. The crop doubles its biomass in 24 hours so harvest takes place every day.

Delivering Nutrition, Functionality and Sustainability -  the daily harvest also adds a steady and predictable supply of protein in tight markets.

Parabel is currently in the process of building its second commercially sized plant in Florida, USA. This facility will have an initial capacity of 3500 tonnes of protein to add to the capacity of the first facility which is currently set to produce 300 tons per year.

LENTEIN Complete is easily formulated into beverages, snacks and bars with its mild and pleasant plant taste.

Today’s discerning consumer is looking for a minimally processed whole food  - and LENTEIN Complete definitely fits that description and the clean label trend that is growing steadily in all markets.

Barentz International is the distributor of LENTEIN
