Product Examples: Almond, Hazelnut, Brazil nut, Walnut, Pecan and Pistachio nuts
Gentle Processing™ Objective: Improve protein efficiency, potentially lower allergenicity, reduce enzymatic activity to prevent premature oxidation and rancidity.
Plant-based proteins are more cost-effective than animal-based sources. A primary source of the “good” fats and healthy proteins are nuts. Nuts such as hazelnuts also deliver a number of nutrients that are considered beneficial for increasing overall cardiovascular health. However, storing nuts appropriately can be complicated and a large portion of the general population seems to be allergic to nuts.
Gentle Processing™ of nuts helps lock in the proteins and make them easier to absorb when consumed, reduces the risks of allergic reactions, and improves the shelf life of nuts.
