The rice protein by Roquette will be presented for the first time during IFT FIRST event, July 10-13, in Chicago. This launch is a new step in the group’s commitment to develop a new plant-based cuisine that supports healthier lifestyles.

Rice protein is popular among nutritional applications such as special diet foods, sports nutrition or snacks. Product launches with rice protein rose at 20% CAGR over 2017-2021, according to Innova Market Insights. A strong growth is also foreseen for dairy (+38% CAGR over 2019-2021) and meat alternative applications (+122% CAGR over 2019-2021) as rice is a well-known, familiar ingredient for savory foods and desserts.

To health-conscious consumers who look for plant-based foods and beverages to support their active lifestyle, NUTRALYS® rice protein offers a non-GM, gluten-free and tasty plant-protein source, to associate with NUTRALYS® pea protein for a complete vegetarian protein supplementation.

A new botanical origin, proof of Roquette’s power to constantly innovate

A survey conducted by Innova in 2020 shows that rice is the second preferred protein alternative for consumers. The new NUTRALYS® rice protein range, composed of a rice protein isolate and a rice protein concentrate, will be first available in North America and in Europe. Roquette helps  customers win over new consumers looking for a broader range of appealing and well-known plant proteins.

With a fine particle size that contributes to smooth and soft texture, and an appealing light cream color, rice protein benefits from a good dispersibility and flowability. This allows great applications in fields such as specialized nutrition, especially in combination with other plant proteins such as pea protein.

Rice: a further step in Roquette’s contribution to the food revolution

NUTRALYS® is a recognized worldwide brand for premium plant proteins, and this new rice protein range highlights how Roquette is uniquely positioned to respond to the current food revolution by entering a new growing market.
