Last year, Ingredion entered into a joint venture agreement with Verdient Foods, Inc., a Canadian company. Expansion plans include producing protein concentrates and flours from peas, lentils and faba beans.

Ingredion also purchased a manufacturing facility in South Sioux City, Nebraska in 2018 to produce protein isolates from peas, with expansion plans to include production of isolates from other pulses.

TIC Gum’s Ticaloid Ultrasmooth CL targets texture in dairy and non-dairy instant protein beverages. This label-friendly hydrocolloid system suspends and stabilizes protein shakes and meal replacers while also improving mouth coating.

Vegan cheese spread

Idea: Create a vegan cheese spread that contains added protein and that has a more dairy-like eating experience.

Roasted cauliflower hummus dip

Organic, vegan, indulgent chocolate protein pudding

Idea: Create an indulgent vegan pudding that’s entirely organic and packed with the power of plant-based protein.
