Manildra Group USA Launches GemPro Ultra

Manildra Group USA Launches Newly Reformulated Wheat Protein

Opportunities with GemPro Ultra range from Organic Dough Conditioner to High Protein Beverages

Leawood, Kansas:Manildra Group USA has launched a newly reformulated GemPro®Ultra to answer the call of today’s trend toward cleaner, simpler ingredients in­­­­ food manufacturing. While GemPro Ultra was originally developed a few years ago, the Manildra team has recently made advancements in process to improve flavor and solubility. In addition, the applications team has identified key functional benefits for both the high protein and organic markets. GemPro Ultra and Organic GemPro Ultra are identical in functionality, allowing you to choose which option best fits your market needs.

The unique characteristics of GemPro Ultra give it the ability to act as a reducing agent in dough products: shortening mix times, increasing extensibility, and assisting with pan flow. “This clean label and organic option for a reducing dough conditioner is a huge advantage for this market,” said Brook Carson, vice president of product development and marketing. “Improvements in process, dough rheology, and texture are observed in applications from bread to snacks.”

With 90% protein, GemPro Ultra helps boosts protein levels, either when used as the sole protein source or in conjunction with others. Wheat proteins, such as GemPro Ultra, are excellent protein options to manage texture as the protein content increases. As consumers continue to seek high protein food sources, formulators must strive to meet that demand with protein sources that provide appealing taste, texture, and nutrition.  The expertise of the Manildra team has fine-tuned the process and enhanced GemPro Ultra making it perfect for use in a multitude of high protein applications.

While many people think of wheat protein for bakery and snack, GemPro Ultra capabilities go beyond the traditional applications and offer alternatives for beverages and nutrition bars. High in glutamine peptides, GemPro Ultra is an optimal choice for nutritional beverages to aid in quicker muscle recovery following intense exercise.

Strength and Stretch with a Clean Label Protein

Some of the best foods are the ones that are designed to carry and elevate other ingredients, while still being the star of the show. From a delicious pizza topped with a tasty tomato sauce and cheese, or a burrito holding in a nice spicy mixture of beans and meat, to a pita filled with slow cooked lamb and tangy tzatziki sauce, the best foods are brought or held together by bread products - making an entire meal possible. Between the ease to eat, endless ingredient possibilities, and overall texture and flavor they provide, flat breads are an increasing way to help deliver the best tasting product.

When making flat bread products to a certain size (say to fill a pizza pan to the edge), the dough stretching but then shrinking back to its original size, or “snap-back,” becomes an issue that can frustrate any baker. Luckily, Manildra has a solution to this exact problem. GemPro Prime-E is a natural wheat protein isolate that dramatically improves the extensibility of a dough, allowing for better dough relaxation and pan flow. The even better part is that the Prime-E does this without sacrificing strength. Your dough will still be able to form a great gluten network, helping to form a great tasting product that consumers will love.

With an addition of as little as 2%, you will see a more relaxed product, enabling the dough to be more easily stretched by either man or machine. Increased amounts can help with extensibility even further. It helps make sure that your dough handles well and will fill your pan every time, helping deliver consistent products to your consumers.

Our GemPro Prime-E is declared on an ingredient label as “Wheat Protein” making it an ideal clean label option as customer demand for clean label increases. It has a neutral flavor profile meaning it won’t produce any off flavors, allowing you to still deliver the great tasting products that your consumers desire. Plus, GemPro Prime-E is 90% protein so you can create and deliver a healthier nutritional profile to attract consumers across a wide array of different lifestyles and habits.
 

If you are looking for a great product that can help you provide better dough rheology, improved machinability, and increased protein content, then look no further our GemPro Prime-E for your solution.
