Description: For the production of Organic Sunflower Protein 55%, organic dehulled sunflower seeds undergo the process of mechanical pressing to separate the oil from the protein. Then, an additional amount of oil is extracted from the raw protein using carbon dioxide (CO2). The next step involves grinding the raw protein into powder through the cryonert technology, where the temperature is controlled, there is no oxygen, and product preservation is ensured.
Special Characteristics: Organic Sunflower Protein 55% has a beige color, a relatively neutral taste, contains all essential amino acids, B vitamins, valuable polyphenols, and is rich in plant fibers. It also has a very low fat content and, therefore, a strong fat-binding ability. With a glutamic acid content of about ten percent, the product is suitable for use in spicy dishes.
Application in Food: Organic Sunflower Protein 55% can be used in vegetarian diets, bars, spreads, sauces, dressings, and protein shakes.
