    Award Winning Pea Protein for High Dispersibility

    11 July 2017
    Glanbia won an innovation award at IFT 2017 for their BevEdge Pea Protein. With a surprising ability to mix into beverages with ease, BevEdge is a game changer for powdered drink mix brands seeking to give consumers a superior experience. Unlike typical pea protein in drink mixes, our patent-pending BevEdge Pea Protein disperses immediately, is bland for easier flavoring, and expresses flavor better without typical pea notes. Made in the USA from Canadian yellow peas, BevEdge Pea Protein delivers the benefits consumers expect. It has a high level of protein, a clean ingredient statement (just label it as “pea protein”), as well as kosher, non-GMO, and gluten free certification. Available in regular and USDA-certified organic options, BevEdge significantly improves the consumer experience in meal replacement RTMs and in smoothie and yogurt toppings.

Glanbia Nutritionals strengthens the science behind its whey-based weight management solution through a new study which is called Prolibra. The independent human clinical trials reveal a statistically significant reduction of up to 37.8 glycaemic index units in the blood after consuming Prolibra – good news for companies looking to launch healthy weight control products with a low GI claim. The glycaemic index (GI) measures how quickly foods release carbohydrates into the body, raising blood glucose levels. Low GI foods provide sustained energy release, promoting a feeling of satiety and delivering health benefits including weight management and reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease. These latest results follow two earlier studies that underpin Glanbia Nutritional’s ongoing commitment to science-based solutions and confirm Prolibra’s strength as an ingredient for sustained weight loss. A rich source of calcium, Prolibra is an entirely natural high protein milk mineral complex suited to a wide range of applications including beverages, such as dairy, smoothies and ready-to-mix options, nutrition bars and snacks.
