Roquette (La Madeleine, France) has launched two rice proteins as part of its Nutralys line, which will be presented for the first time during IFT First, taking place July 10-13 in Chicago. According to Innova Market Insights, product launches with rice protein had a compound annual growth rate of 20% between 2017 and 2021. Its popularity is expected to see continued growth because rice is a well-known and familiar ingredient. Nutralys rice proteins are non-GMO and gluten-free. Available in a rice protein isolate and rice protein concentrate, which will be first available in North America and Europe, the fine particle size of the products contributes to a smooth and soft texture and an appealing light cream color. Rice protein also benefits from good dispersibility and flowability.

“There is an unstoppable food revolution underway that is changing how people eat,” said Jeremy Burks, senior vice president of plant proteins at Roquette, in a press release. “In the USA or in Europe, consumers are asking for better plant-based protein that tastes great while being nutritious and safe. Building on our more than 40 years of expertise in plant proteins, today we offer a new rice protein to stay at the forefront of this shift and to keep building the plant-based cuisine of the future! At Roquette, we aim to be the best partner for all our customers and all food lovers.”
