Unique to the marketplace, ProDiem™ is a plant protein solution optimised for nutrition and taste. ProDiem™ uses a proprietary processing technique and Kerry’s flavour masking technology to address the grainy, chalky texture and mask the characteristic off notes and bitterness traditionally associated with plant proteins.
For nutritional bars, we have utilised our Total Novel Texture (TNT) technology to reduce bar hardening over shelf life and enhance the textural attributes, improving overall taste.
To provide a high quality plant protein, we selected a proprietary combination of plant proteins including pea, rice and oat to improve the protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS), delivering a complete protein with all essential amino acids.
The ProDiem™ portfolio offers dairy free, soy free and vegan proteins, enabling customers to enhance the nutritional profile of their products such as powder nutritional beverages, ready to drink (RTD) beverages and nutritional bars, all without impacting flavour or texture.
