Harnessing the health-promoting properties of natural flaxseed, LinPro 140 contains beneficial omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidant lignans; the 100% flax ingredient has a low Glycemic Index and delivers a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 0.68 and 38-40% protein content. Furthermore, this protein fortification ingredient is also vegetarian, GMO-free, and contains 32% fiber.
In addition to a healthy protein positioning, LinPro 140 delivers appealing organaleptic properties. Its clean flavor profile and non-gritty mouth-feel lends a unique, soft texture in bars throughout their shelf life. The powder’s excellent solubility makes it ideal for use in beverages, adding to the smooth mouth-feel in viscous products.
LinPro 140 is heat treated with Glanbia Nutritionals’ patented MicroSure Plus 5-log kill process. The validated treatment process is designed to provide safe flaxseed with a stable shelf life of two years. MicroSure’s ability to deliver a 5-log pathogen kill process gives manufacturers confidence in food ingredient safety without compromising on product quality or nutritional value.
Marilyn Stieve, business development manager – flax, at Glanbia Nutritionals said: “Flax is currently experiencing huge interest thanks to its numerous health benefits and superfood status. LinPro 140 offers all the nutritional value of flax in a completely natural product that meets manufacturer demand for high quality protein, fiber and omega 3s, as well as maintaining the desired sensory properties. Our flax protein powder fraction is concentrated through mechanical, rather than chemical, processes and is non-GMO and hormone-free, making LinPro 140 even more appealing to the health-conscious consumer.”
