Nutrition bars continue to be vexed by becoming brittle before their time. Specifically developed for bar applications, Hilmar[tm] 8370 is an 80% WPH containing pre-digested proteins, short peptides and amino acids. Functionally, it allows the production of bars with enduringly softer and more pliable textures than WPC and WPI, and offers improved flavor over other hydrolysates. A source of the complete protein humans need, Hilmar 8370 is ideal for high-protein bar formulations including 40:30:30, low-carbohydrate and low-glycemic index. The ingredient can be used alone or as partial replacement for caseinate, hydrolyzed gelatin and soy protein. Hilmar Ingredients, 209-667-6076,
