Product Description

VegOtein TX™ (VEJ-oh-teen), the shorter ingredient list solution, is derived from North American peas and the latest in Axiom’s growing line of functional pea protein ingredients. It is a good source of highly-digestible plant-based protein for use in both meat and meatless products. Launching with five different SKUs and boasting a 1.0 PDCAAS, Axiom’s texturized pea protein is the ideal gluten- and soy-free alternative to soy-based, texturized, extruded vegetable protein. With protein concentrations in ≥75% and ≥80%, five different sizes, a bland taste profile and large or small crumbles in multiple shapes, VegOtein TX™ provides the perfect base for mimicking the meaty taste and robust texture that plant-based consumers are increasingly demanding in alternative chicken, seafood and beef products. Nonetheless, texturized pea protein may also be used to lower the fat content, preserve moisture and extend meat-based products.
