Lentil functional flour
Lentil flour is a protein-rich, functionally equivalent substitute for modified starches that can be listed as simply “lentil flour” in an ingredient statement. This clean-label product is made using just non-GMO lentils, water and heat. It can boost protein content across formulations and help achieve “good source,” “excellent source" and high protein claims, depending on the application. It also offers fiber, vitamins and minerals, with a clean, neutral flavor profile suitable for both sweet and savory applications.
