PurisPea Pea Protein Granted GRAS Status

April 25, 2016

FDA has issued a “letter of no objection” to World Food Processing for its PurisPea un-hydrolyzed and hydrolyzed pea protein.

World Food Processing (Oskaloosa, IA) has received a “letter of no objection” from FDA confirming the Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status of its PurisPea pea protein ingredient.

“Achieving GRAS status adds yet another layer of confidence and another advantage for manufacturers who want to create foods and beverages with mass-market appeal,” says Tyler Lorenzen, president of World Food Processing’s proteins and ingredient subsidiary.

PurisPea is available in both un-hydrolyzed and hydrolyzed forms. Its GRAS status now makes it suitable for use as a protein source in bakery products, smoothies, soups, imitation dairy products, meal replacement bars, and many other food types.

“PurisPea checks all the boxes in terms of today’s food trends: It’s clean, non-GMO, devoid of the eight common allergens and it’s lightly processed with no harsh chemicals, all while being the only non-GMO pea protein grown and manufactured in the U.S.,” says Lorenzen.
