Plant-based protein company Roquette has announced its launch of two new rice proteins, as it looks to meet consumer demand for meat alternative applications.
The new Nutralys rice protein range consists of a rice protein isolate and a rice protein concentrate, offering consumers a “familiar, safe and nutritious alternative protein” with “premium quality and high standards of production”.
Nutralys rice protein offers a non-GM and gluten-free plant-protein source, to associate with Roquette’s Nutralys pea protein for complete vegetarian protein supplementation for specialised nutrition.
The proteins have a fine particle size that contributes to their smooth and soft texture and a light cream colour.
Jeremy Burks, senior vice president of plant proteins at Roquette, said: “There is an unstoppable food revolution underway that is changing how people eat. In the US or in Europe, consumers are asking for better plant-based protein that tastes great while being nutritious and safe.”
“Building on our more than 40 years of expertise in plant proteins, today we offer a new rice protein to stay at the forefront of this shift and to keep building the plant-based cuisine of the future. At Roquette, we aim to be the best partner for all our customers and all food lovers,” Burks continued.
The new rice protein range will initially be available in North America and Europe.
