Parabel has developed a proprietary growth system that allows the plant its ultimate conditions to thrive so that harvest takes place every day, all year round. For industries looking to secure their supply and cost this is a very welcome aspect. This also adds to the plant’s hero status since the yield per hectare of protein is so high compared to conventional crops – even GMO versions.

Parabel’s technology permits extraction of various protein concentrations and includes a minimal processing method that retains the product’s functional attributes and nutrients in the protein. It is a Whole Protein in that it delivers more benefits than just the protein. In fact it can be labeled high in anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins.

LENTEIN® has an Amino Acid score (AAS) that is comparable to whey and higher than other plant proteins.
