Meeting a growing demand
The retail market for plant-based alternative foods is exploding: growing 31% since 2017 to almost $4.5 billion. By contrast, the sales of the total US retail food market grew by only 4% in the same time. In order to succeed in this market, formulators must seek out unique ingredients that satisfy consumer demands. We’re proud to be the world’s first supplier to offer high-purity, non-GMO, and food-grade canola protein for nutritional bars and meat, seafood, and egg alternatives.

It displays excellent solubility across the pH range, and possesses a very good foaming and whipping capacity that exceeds performance of egg albumen. It’s high in cysteine content that makes it a good compliment to other plant proteins such as pea.
