CHICAGO — Glanbia Nutritionals has introduced BevGrad Oats GF and BevGrad Quinoa to its portfolio. The ingredients are made from the whole grain with nutrients and fiber intact. They may be used to help products qualify for the Whole Grain Stamp from the Whole Grains Council.
The dispersibility and smooth mouthfeel of the ingredients allow for their use in powdered drink mixes, according to Glanbia Nutritionals.
“BevGrad solutions are super-finely milled seeds and grains that result in superior taste, a smoother, non-gritty mouthfeel, as well as a clean label,” said Charles Steenwyk, global product manager — grains for Glanbia Nutritionals. “BevGrad solutions by design make it easier to incorporate seeds and whole grains into beverages and products consumers are seeking.”Glanbia Nutritionals’ proprietary OatSecure supply chain process ensures the oats in the ingredients retain their gluten-free status at every stage of production.
