Parabel announces new, patent pending Milk from Water Lentils
US-based Parabel Inc, a producer of plant protein ingredients, has recently disclosed the introduction of its new, patent pending milk made from water lentils, adding to its rapidly growing portfolio of patents worldwide.
Peter Sherlock, Parabel’s CTO said, “We are all elated to have achieved this breakthrough innovation. Our lentil milk is similar in color to regular milk and captures the extraordinary, high quality protein and mineral benefits of water lentils while containing no allergens. The milk froths and foams effectively. This innovative addition also retains the same high level of sustainability as the rest of our product range.”
The plant-based milk market has continued to grow over the years, now accounting for 15% of total milk sales in the US, and is set to grow at a double digit rate over the next few years.
Parabel already has 94 patents around the extraction and end use of plant protein from water lentils (Lemnaceae), often called the world’s smallest flowering plant. Parabel uses no chemicals or pesticides to grow and process this Non-GMO plant and the environmental footprint is low. Parabel’s technology is highly scalable as water lentils can double in biomass every day enabling daily crop harvests.
The plant protein has been well received by the industry for inclusion into beverages, snacks and bars due to its hypoallergenic and nutrient dense profile. Food manufacturers are looking for healthy and sustainable plant-based alternatives to many grocery staples, and water lentils are proving to be a perfect solution for them. LENTEIN® received the ‘No Objections’ letter from the FDA in 2018.
Parabel operates globally from its headquarter in Florida and has an existing product portfolio that includes protein concentrates, isolate and protein flour. Parabel is also finalising its 2nd farm bringing the capacity for LENTEIN plant protein to 3,500 metric tonnes per year.
Parabel USA Inc is based in Vero Beach, Florida and processes water lentils into LENTEIN plant protein.
