Within the fast-growing clean-label market, consumers are demonstrating an increased appetite for products made with chickpea flour, an emerging plant-based ingredient. Chickpea is one of the hottest new ingredients, and consumers are falling in love – in fact, its popularity has grown by 23% in North America in the past three years,* driven by consumers’ desire for non-GMO, gluten-free products.
Tate & Lyle recently introduced Artesa® Chickpea Flour, a versatile alternative in the plant-based product sector. Ingredient-conscious consumers value healthy, natural alternatives to wheat or soy, and with Artesa®, Tate & Lyle has delivered a solution that fulfills all of these most important needs. Artesa® meets the ISO’s standard for natural ingredients and is verified by the Non-GMO Project, making it an attractive and competitive option for natural-minded consumers. As a plant-based, vegan, and gluten-free ingredient containing no soy or wheat, Artesa® serves as a safe alternative for consumers with allergies or other dietary restrictions. Combined with great taste and 1% fat–less than any other chickpea flour–the benefits of Artesa® to health-conscious consumers position it at the top of this rapidly growing category of ingredients.
Artesa® Chickpea Flour is an important innovation in the chickpea ingredient space. Using a proprietary protein recovery and milling platform, Artesa® helps formulators overcome a wide range of taste and texture challenges faced in the clean-label market. Artesa® is both functional and versatile, featuring a neutral taste and color profile, and its small particle size and highly functional gelling properties leave it well suited to a wide range of product applications. Its versatility allows it to be used seamlessly in gluten-free salty snacks, pizza crusts, baked goods, and breaded meat analogues. Artesa® also presents a solution to many nutritional challenges faced by formulators; it can be used to lower fat content, enhance the nutritional value of gluten-free products, and add protein and fiber to snacks. In a market rapidly increasing in popularity, Tate & Lyle’s innovative Artesa® Chickpea Flour is an appealing, great-tasting solution for consumers and formulators alike.
