VANCOUVER, B.C. — P-Pro Plus, a new pea protein ingredient, includes ClearTaste, a bitter-blocker designed to deal with taste issues that manufacturers of foods, beverages and dietary supplements may face when working with pea protein alone. A partnership between GLG Life Tech Corp., Vancouver, and MycoTechnology Corp., Aurora, Colo., developed P-Pro Plus.

“Plant-based proteins have proven to be a large and growing market,” said Brian Meadows, president and chief financial officer for GLG Life Tech. “Our innovative product brings significant potential for greater consumer interest in products containing our P-Pro Plus pea protein.

“Our joint product development focus is to bring better tasting and better-for-you natural ingredients to the marketplace, and we expect to bring many additional better tasting natural products to the market in the coming months.”

GLG Life Tech will have a booth at Natural Products Expo West March 11-13 in Anaheim, Calif. The company offers sweeteners extracted from stevia plants and monk fruit. MycoTechnology develops technology based on mushrooms. The company’s ClearTaste is certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

P-Pro Plus is available in both conventional and organic varieties and in various mesh sizes and protein purity levels.
