Protein and Flax in nutrition bars

Protein and Flax in nutrition bars

Sometimes I am asked what is the highest protein level nugget we can offer. I am always happy to say it is a 90% soy protein nugget.

On the other hand, I am also asked what is the lowest protein level nugget we have, and I am happy to answer it is 30%. We also have a variety of protein contents in between.

It is nice to be able to offer such a range of protein levels in nuggets or crisps, made with soy protein (Solae/DuPont) or whey protein (Grande Custom Ingredients).

Nuggets or crisps are a convenient way to add protein to nutrition or performance bars. Additionally, these provide particulate texture with different densities and some are variations that include multigrain or fiber, for convenience.  The texture ranges from that similar to a rice crisp (but with higher protein content) to some that are more protein dense or a little more rigid.

Our flaxseed flour/meal from Heartland Flax is also used in bars. It is added as an excellent source of dietary fiber, protein and lignans.  It is also a good source of minerals such as magnesium, potassium and phosphorus. Heartland’s flaxseed flour/meal truly cold milled process allows for its RCM Flax (Real Cold Milled) to have a shelf life of more than 20 months.  Its proprietary milling method does not grind, crush or liberate oil, like other processes, making it unique and stable.
