Potato Protein is extracted from non-genetically modified potatoes. Potato protein isolates are a "Clean Label Product" and pure and native. They do not require any allergen labelling. Potato Protein is vegan as well as halal- and kosher-certified. And they are more sustainable and are higher (2-3X higher) than animal proteins. Thanks to a well balanced amino acid composition, potato protein has a high biological value, higher than offered by any other vegetable protein and close to whey and egg protein. This makes it a good source for protein fortification in a wide range of food products.
What is it Used For?
Potato protein offers superior emulsifying, foaming and gelling properties. They have shown to be able to substitute high-value animal proteins like caseinate, whey protein isolate, gelatin, egg albumen (egg white) and egg yolk, in various confectionery products, meat and meat analogues, non-dairy cheese, toppings and ice creams, and egg-free dressings. Also excellent gluten-free bakery goods can be achieved. Potato Protein is also a replacement for Aquafaba, or Chickpea/Garbanzo water for Vegan Meringues, Macarons, and Mayonnaise. Potato Protein provides consistent results and much faster processing times and is lower cost than both eggs whites and Aquafaba.
We have all heard of people that are allergic to Gluten or Soy. Allergic reactions to food is a rapidly growing consumer concern globally. Many animal and vegetable proteins, such as from soy, milk, egg, or wheat, are now classified as allergens people must identify on menus, recipes, and packaged food products.
Lower allergen proteins such as from rice, maize/corn or pea protein, provide limited solubility, nutrition and texture and usually have very undesirable taste profiles. What makes Vegan Gastronomy potato protein unique is the combination of high functionality, good nutrition and are allergy free.
