    17 May 2017
    Kerry launched ProDiem at Vitafoods Europe in Geneva, a complementary combination of plant proteins including pea, rice and oat to improve the protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS). The product is claimed to deliver a solution with a complete essential amino acid profile. In creating ProDiem, Kerry says it has successfully pushed past the limitations of traditional plant based proteins, providing a plant based protein that is optimized for nutrition, texture and taste. ProDiem is a great option for soy-free, non-dairy and vegan protein and is available to boost the nutritional content of beverages, bar and snack applications.
