Plant Based Proteins
The Plant Based Protein world has seen a boom with the increasing popularity from vegetarianism, veganism, etc. While only a small percentage of the population are vegans and vegetarians, most people deman many choices when selecting how to feed themselves and their families. Many are looking for sustainable choices that either reduces or eliminates the consumption of animal based products. Blentech is an innovator in the area of plant based proteins where different textured vegetable proteins and emulsions are combined. Tofu, edamame, chickpeas, lentils, and nutritional yeast are some of the most popular plant based products, but the options are seemingly endless with new discoveries being made all the time.
Our food science knowledge coupled with our recent R&D projects with a variety of plant based protein companies, makes Bletench a uniquely experienced company that can offer a huge advantage when it comes to equipment selection, design and engineering systems for protein alternative products.
