DuPont soy, pea protein nuggets expanded with higher protein, less sodium, and more shapes

March 14, 2019

The company has added six nuggets offering even higher protein content and less sodium, as well as an expanded array of shapes.

DuPont (St. Louis) has enhanced its range of soy and pea protein nuggets. These nuggets are extruded ingredients designed to add a crunchy texture and higher protein content to a variety of foods, including snacks, cereals, and nutrition bars. The company has added six nuggets offering even higher protein content and less sodium, as well as an expanded array of shapes (not pictured).

Within the company’s Supro soy protein nugget range, the company has added Supro Soy Protein Nugget 310 LS, an oval-shaped soy protein nugget with 80% protein content on a dry basis and less than 120 mg of sodium per 100 g.

The company has also expanded its Supro Soy Protein Nuggets with Cocoa line, whose ingredients resemble chocolate cookie bits, flakes, and chips and are well suited to snack bars, offering up to 82% protein on a dry basis. Three new nuggets have been added: 1) an irregular, flake-like nugget, 2) a larger barrel shape, and 3) a traditional oval shape.

The company’s Trupro pea protein nuggets, which feature 70% protein on a dry basis, are now offered in a greater variety of shapes, including nuggets with a firm texture and oval shape; and nuggets with an irregular, flake-like shape that the company says “blends seamlessly in formulations with high grain, nut, or seed content.”
