KMC is pleased to announce the launch of our new food-grade potato protein – “Protafy”
Food manufacturers and product developers of plant-based formulations struggle with allergen labelling and risk of nutrient deficiencies due to the natural composition of most plant proteins. Potato protein stands out with a fully balanced and complete amino acid profile, which play an important role ensuring the nutritional quality of plant-based formulations.
The fact that potatoes are already one of the world's most important food crops, facilitates communication towards the increasingly label-conscious consumers. Findings suggest that food manufacturers highlight the precise protein type in the ingredient list, where potato protein in particular leads to favorable consumer perception *1).
Protafy 130 from KMC is a highly purified potato protein concentrate for fortification of both vegan and non-vegan food products and perfectly matches the growing demand for plant-based proteins. Protafy 130 allows food manufacturers to boost the nutritional quality of foods and snacks in a highly sustainable way.
Please contact your local representative if you would like to request a sample or to know more about Protafy.
Let’s take food forward.
