The latest addition to the NUTRALYS® lineup includes NUTRALYS® Fava S900M, a fava bean protein isolate that excels in meat substitutes, dairy alternatives, and baked foods. This ingredient boasts a high protein concentration allowing for lower usage ratios while offering high gel strength, viscosity control, and stability.

"Part of the pulse family, fava beans have long been valued for their properties in textured applications,” says Romain Joly, Global Head of Proteins Business Line at Roquette. “But in recent years, the focus has shifted to its ability to deliver high protein levels and leverage sensory attributes. Through extensive research and development, we have been able to unlock the immense potential of fava beans in protein fortification.”

Roquette’s commitment to innovation is further evident in the development of four advanced pea proteins, including NUTRALYS® Pea F853M. This pea protein isolate improves firmness and thickness, ideal for creating meat alternatives and plant-based spreads.

“Through significant investment and development, we’ve found the winning formula for optimal taste, texture, and techno-functionality, opening up a world of opportunity for application innovation in the plant protein market,” says Romain Joly.
