PEAKARA® an Upcycled, Plant-based Protein for Sports Nutrition
The sports nutrition market is a rapidly growing sector driven by the rise of active lifestyle consumers, in addition to athletes, plus there is an increased focus on plant-based protein products.
According to a survey on sports nutrition consumers conducted by V-label GmbH in 2021, 71% of
consumers say that 'plant-based proteins' are attractive, ahead of “whey protein,” where 69% say so.
Ingood by Olga is continuing to develop its offering in the nutrition and health markets with a range of plant-based Nutri-functional ingredients. Aiming to offer the best range of materials by providing natural and functional ingredients for a wide audience base.
After 2 years in development focusing on a commitment to limiting environmental impact and food waste for a more circular model, Ingood by Olga has launched a new nutri-functional ingredient: PEAKARA®. The name is a contraction of 'PEA' to emphasize the material from which it is derived (European yellow pea) and 'KARA', a play on the word "okara" to emphasize that this is an upcycled ingredient.
What is PEAKARA®?
PEAKARA® is an innovative plant-based and upcycled ingredient made from European yellow peas, developed specifically for sports nutrition recovery post-workout.
The pea protein PEAKARA® is:
- protein-rich with high-quality proteins 55%
- a healthy omega 3 and omega 6 ratio at 1:5
- rich in fibers, more than 8%
- and low in sugars, less than 1%
PEAKARA® has a unique protein composition for a plant-based protein with a quality close to that of an animal-based protein: it is rich in EAA’s: 46% per 100g of protein and in BCAA’s: 22.4% per 100g of protein.
PEAKARA® is a complete source of essential amino acids (EAA’s) and is highly digestible with a chemical index of 157 (according to regulation 96/8 CE) and a PDCAAS of 1 (FAO, 1991).
PEAKARA® is perfect for healthy and tasty plant-based protein-enriched applications targeting post-workout recovery for a high-quality plant-based protein enrichment. Neutral in taste and non-allergenic, it's perfect for healthy, vegan, and tasty plant-based protein-enriched applications such as ready-to-mix protein powders, protein bars, energy balls, desserts, spreads, etc.
