New natural wheat proteins provide enhanced taste, texture

For natural, better-for-you foods and snacks, choose SmartBind™ natural wheat proteins. Ideal for products requiring natural ingredients, SmartBind natural wheat proteins provide the unique functionality of sugar or fat in delicate systems that demand desired texture and flavor with added protein.

These innovative ingredients duplicate the functionality of sugar while increasing the protein content. SmartBind™ natural wheat proteins can be used to replace the sugar binding properties traditionally used in bars, either partially or completely. Calories are shifted away from sugar to protein on the nutritional label without impacting texture or product integrity. Opportunities now exist for savory bars without the added sweetness from traditional syrups used for binding. Additional protein can be infused into these products by removing the sugar, thus boosting protein grams.
