Proprietary soybeans allow for reduced processing steps, offering food manufacturers immediate cost, carbon, and water use supply chain benefits
Benson Hill, Inc., a US-based food tech company unlocking the natural genetic diversity of plants, has announced the launch of TruVail™, a new line of domestically sourced, non-GMO plant-based protein ingredients with unique sustainability benefits.
The TruVail™ brand’s initial offering includes high protein soy flour, a less processed equivalent to soy protein concentrate (SPC), and texturized proteins for broad use across traditional soy protein applications as well as rapidly growing alternative plant-based protein markets.
TruVail™ ingredients are sourced from Benson Hill’s proprietary Ultra-High Protein (UHP) soybeans, reducing the need for additional processing steps typically required to concentrate protein levels. The resulting less processed, value-added ingredient can serve as a more sustainable alternative to commodity soy protein concentrate (SPC) and can require up to 70% less water and up to 50% less CO2e to produce than SPC. Benson Hill works with farmers to grow its identity preserved UHP soybean varieties with an emphasis on regenerative agriculture practices, enabling sustainability benefits from farm to fork.
