Functional Proteins

Our Brown Pea and Fava Bean proteins are flours are actually natural blends of native proteins and starch. There is no heat step in our manufacturing process. We propose our flours as functional ingredients for food preparation or processing. The flours are not soluble in cold water and the taste of the raw flours does not represent the taste of the final product. Please refer to our Testing Protocol if you have received a sample from us. The functionality we refer to requires food preparation or processing involving a heat step.
