Glanbia Nutritionals will showcase five new ingredient advances at IFT17 Booth 2240. Company experts will also be on stand to introduce innovative, versatile ingredients and answer visitor questions.
Visitors to the Glanbia booth will be able to see new BevEdge Pea Protein, which delivers advancement in the dispersibility, mouthfeel and flavor of pea protein in powdered drink mixes. BevEdge Pea Protein mixes instantly in water, and is neutral to taste, offering a smooth mouthfeel experience and flavor expression. BevEdge Pea Protein creates new opportunities for brands looking to offer premium plant-based powdered drink mixes.
Glanbia will also preview its new Pea Protein Crisps, offering bar brands and healthy snack brands superior texture, flavor and overall performance to help differentiate their products in an increasingly crowded market. These crisps deliver a crunch texture and an overall better eating experience while also delivering plant-based protein fortification.
Versatile and Nutritious Cheese
The company’s new Freeze Dried Cheese is a convenient, shelf stable and nutrient packed dairy food that delivers real cheddar or mozzarella cheese once rehydrated. It’s also versatile enough to be used in dehydrated form. This natural ingredient offers significant versatility for snacks, bars, soups, prepared meals and ready-to-eat meals. It is high in protein, rich in calcium, lightweight, portable, and delivers the flavor cheese lovers crave.
Innovative Supplement Delivery
Also on stand will be Crystal Bursts technology, a recent development offering new delivery opportunities in supplementation for consumers, without the need for pills or capsules. Crystal Bursts are carbonated crystals, designed to deliver vitamins, minerals, and a wide range of bioactives (including Glanbia’s Bioferrin lactoferrin) in a fun and convenient way, as they tingle and pop in the mouth.
Setting a Higher Standard for Grass Fed Whey Protein
Experts will also be on hand to discuss Glanbia’s access to Truly Grass Fed whey protein. Glanbia Nutritionals, working in partnership with Glanbia Ingredients Ireland, now supplies Truly Grass Fed whey protein to the U.S. market. The ingredients come from Ireland and are 95% grass fed, Non-GMO Project Verified, with no artificial hormones. Working in partnership with brand owners, Truly Grass Fed ingredient customers can use a branded Truly Grass Fed seal as an endorser on-pack, supported by a consumer facing website and communications campaign.
