At Vitafoods, Solanic will introduce PRO GO. This is a vegetarian protein with an unique amino acid profile. It can be used in the global supplement and sports nutrition market. PRO GO is available for a wide range of applications from powders to bars, beverages and gels.
Solanic, a 100% subsidiary of Dutch AVEBE, has developed a pure protein extract from potatoes. A very high amount of the so-called branched chain amino acids makes it perfect for new sports nutrition concepts.
“Our proteins may offer new application solutions for the sports nutrition industry,” says Michiel Puttman, CEO of Solanic.
”We have shown our processing is sustainable: the land footprint is 5-10 times less than that of dairy protein or meat. The energy and water footprint of PRO GO is less than that of other proteins. PRO GO adds sustainability to our daily protein need,” comments Saskia Oort, Market Manager Nutrition of Solanic.
Saskia adds: “We are looking towards the general exercising consumer as a target group and intend to convey our clinical with these people. PRO GO is looking for less but better consumer intake of proteins for exercising.”
“We are here at Vitafoods to meet potential partners to discuss new types of nutritional concepts,” concludes Michiel Puttman.
Solanic, a 100 % subsidiary of AVEBE, has the objective to create new value from potatoes by refining, developing and marketing of non-starch based ingredients from the potato, having a focus on proteins. Solanic is exhibiting at Vitafoods, Geneva, stand no 789.
