PGP International is promoting its expertise in pea proteins. The company says it has a track record of innovation and a proactive focus on applications for high performing extruded products and, right now, pea proteins are proving to be a bit of a hero. The advanced extrusion technology applied at PGPI is said to produce a high protein crisp that is totally free of hexane and allergens and perfect for a wide range of applications such as energy bars, nutrition rich food, cereals, snacks and confections.

The company notes that recent studies reveal that pea protein may yield health benefits that promote a sense of fullness and stimulate the body’s peptide production, abating the feelings of hunger. It’s a finished application product that is already meeting the needs of PGPI customers that want high quality ingredients for their consumer products that are rich in protein, tasty and allergen free.

“Pea Proteins are a good choice for customers that need to pack in extra protein,” said Peter Hassing, VP of Business Unit Extrusion at PGPI in Woodland, California. “The high protein crisp product is typically in a market where our customers need to respond quickly to changing demands and our strength comes from a fast turnaround, an innovative approach and faultless quality.”
