Pulse-based flours launched
Ingredion has introduced ten new pulse-based flours to enable food manufacturers and retailers to produce new food products that are highly nutritious, protein fortified and certified gluten-free.
The Homecraft Pulse flours are made from faba bean, chickpea, yellow lentil or yellow pea. Available in different particle grades, the new flours have differing content levels of starch and protein to meet a variety of food manufacturers’ needs in different applications.
Containing around twice as much protein as cereal grains, the pulse-based flours provide a way for manufacturers to meet the continuing trend for nutritious, protein-enriched food products. The new ‘coarse’, ‘fine’ and ‘high starch’ flour categories are suitable for a range of bakery products, including snacks, bread, cakes, cereals and pasta.
