Atura Vegetable Protein

To sustainably meet the demand for vegetable products rich in protein come Atura Vegetable Protein Isolates

Atura products are innovative protein isolates with chickpeas, red lentils and fava beans, developed to perfect the amino acid protein profile of vegetable-based foods and drinks, supplements and functional foods.

The market for products of plant origin is growing rapidly, and the development trends show that more and more consumers express a preference for healthy, natural and sustainable products. In this context, the value of proteins and their role in human health and well-being are widely known. Consequently, the demand for a variety of convenient and nutritionally valid vegetable foods is also increasing.
Alesco has decided to introduce Atura vegetable protein isolates into the Italian market to fuel this growth and help the food and drink industry to sustainably meet the demand for a diet rich in alternative proteins to those of animal origin.

Atura vegetable protein isolates, more than just simple powdered proteins…

These are not flours with a high protein content, but protein isolates containing chickpeas, red lentils and fava beans, with a minimum concentration of 80%. These highly concentrated proteins offer an innovative and effective solution for perfecting the protein-amino acid profile of products for the food and nutraceutical industry, with the highest nutritional standards.
Furthermore, in contrast to other vegetable protein sources currently available on the market, protein isolates containing chickpeas and red lentils have no organoleptic limits. Their neutral palatability, colour and characteristics make them ideal for any kind of application.

Atura protein isolates ensure a new, safe access to different sources of vegetable proteins, produced in Europe with the highest quality standards and supported by validated nutritional and sensory science.
