Pulses are plant foods with many benefits for the body that are essential for a healthy and balanced diet. They are low in fat, rich in proteins, fibre and micronutrients, but not only: pulses are an important source of group B vitamins, folic acid and minerals like iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and zinc.
Plant proteins: scientific development by ATURA
Knowing that pulses have enormous nutritional potential, ATURA has developed protein isolates based on chickpeas, red lentils and broad beans, with a minimum concentration of 80%. These highly concentrated proteins offer an innovative and effective solution for improving the protein-amino acid profile of products for the food and nutraceutical industry.
Indeed, the demand for healthy and reliable plant protein foods, with high nutritional standards, has grown exponentially in recent years. This stems mostly from a desire among a large section of the population to give up animal proteins, opting for plant-based ones instead, both for ethical and environmental reasons, without giving up essential nutrients for the health and well-being of the body.
ATURA has responded to these requirements by offering protein isolates derived from chickpeas, broad beans and red lentils with a complete and high-quality organoleptic profile, as well as a neutral palatability that does not affect the flavour of the finished product.
ATURA protein isolates contain more than 80% pure proteins, guaranteeing an excellent amino acid profile which, combined with a low sodium and saturated fat content, produces plant isolate flours that can be used to enrich the nutritional values of a variety of foods, such as those intended for athletes.
The formulation of ATURA’s protein isolates is optimised for:
- Nutritional powders
- Plant-based drinks
- Energy snacks and bars
- Sports nutrition
- Meat alternatives
