Soy That Tastes Better
Prolise, Cargill's new line of soy isolates, represents a breakthrough in taste that is expanding opportunities for food manufacturers to meet consumer demand for soy protein.
"Until now, the soy-beany taste isolates gave to foods and beverages made the ingredient less appealing to the Western palette," says Kevin Marcus, director of marketing for Cargill Soy Protein Solutions. "Prolise's bland flavor and high protein content make it an ideal solution for food manufacturers to incorporate enough soy protein into their products to meet the FDA's [US Food and Drug Administration] soy protein health claim." The FDA health claim permits food companies to promote the cardiovascular health benefits of soy protein.
Prolise is a patented, proprietary product that excels in solubility and mouthfeel, and works well in a variety of foods and beverages, including dairy-like products, infant formulas, processed meats, meat alternatives and prepared foods. It's functional properties include water holding, emulsification and gelling, which help to maintain or improve food quality.
