28 Sep 2017 --- DuPont Nutrition & Health has expanded its 90 percent protein nugget product range, with three new products which have an exceptionally high level of protein and are label friendly. These plant-based nuggets have a neutral flavor and crispy, crunchy texture and are ideal for use in snacks, cereals and nutrition bars, DuPont reports. 

With their high protein level, DuPont notes that these nuggets can help formulators achieve desired protein levels while using liberal amounts of nuts, seeds and fruit to add visual appeal. Available in a range of textures, shapes and sizes, the 90 percent protein nuggets offer a range of possibilities to create innovative and great-tasting products.

“Consumers want products with simple ingredient statements and high protein,” says Jean Heggie, strategic marketing lead, Protein Solutions Business Unit, DuPont Nutrition & Health. “These new additions to our nugget portfolio deliver on those promises while providing excellent taste, crunchy texture and strong visual appeal in nutrition bars, cereals and a range of healthy snacks.”

DuPont Nutrition & Health was the first supplier to offer a 90 percent protein nugget with the initial introduction of Supro Nuggets 570, a light, crispy textured nugget with a barrel shape. Three new 90 percent protein nuggets have now been added to the portfolio, each featuring a unique shape, size and texture: 

  • Supro Nuggets 580 – The firmer texture of this oval-shaped nugget delivers a crunchier texture and better piece integrity during processing, resulting in more appealing bars and snacks.
  • Supro Nuggets 583 – The unstructured shape of this nugget creates visual appeal in clustered cereals, yogurt topping, muesli and bars, while adding crispy, crunchy texture.
  • Supro Nuggets 585 – This larger round-shaped nugget offers a unique appearance and crunchy texture, making it ideal for novel snack formats, nutrition bars and cereals. 

Supro and the other protein brands are part of the DuPont Danisco ingredient range. DuPont also offers Supro Soy Protein products ranging from 60-90 percent protein, Fiber Nuggets delivering a minimum of 55 percent dietary fiber from soy, and Trupro Pea Protein Nuggets. Soy protein and fiber nuggets provide high-quality, plant-based protein and/or fiber nutrition, and a crispy, crunchy texture. They are excellent choices for nutrition bars (extruded, sheeted and baked), clustered cereals and toppings, and a great way to deliver a nutrition boost to a variety of snack and confection formats.
