PGP International (PGPI) has a track record of innovation and a proactive focus on applications for high performing extruded products—and right now, pea proteins are proving to be a bit of a hero.

The advanced extrusion technology applied at PGPI produces a High Protein Crisp that is totally free of hexane and allergens and perfect for a wide range of applications such as energy bars, nutrition rich food, cereals, snacks and confections.

It’s a finished application product that already is meeting the needs of PGPI customers that want high quality ingredients for their consumer products that are rich in protein, tasty and allergen free.

“Pea Proteins are a good choice for customers that need to pack in extra protein,” says Peter Hassing, vice president of Business Unit Extrusion at PGPI in Woodland, Calif. “Pea Proteins are a good choice for customers that need to pack in extra protein.
