Nandi Proteins is helping address major issues facing food companies under pressure to tackle social, health and environmental concerns with processed foods – such as obesity and the importance of proteins within diets.
We are a food science innovator, partnering with protein producers to enhance the functionality of their ingredients and deliver improved products for their customers.
We are actively working on improving the functionality of whey protein, collagen and a growing number of plant proteins. We have developed ingredients to replace emulsifiers, remove fat and replace egg white. Our pipeline includes activities to replace ingredients such as methylcellulose and xanthan gum that food producers are keen to remove from their products.
Brands are under pressure to cut the amount of sugar, fat and e-numbers in their products from governments, regulators and consumers. The drive for change from governments and regulators is primarily driven by the continuing rise in obesity. Consumers want to know that the food they are eating is good for them and is made using ingredients that they recognise.
The formulation of products that deliver a great eating experience but address the multitude of concerns around nutrition requires a major shift in food ingredients and their functionality.
