Vestkorn Faba Protein is a natural native protein with a uniquely high protein content of 65%. This ingredient offers an excellent amino acid profile, similar to pea protein. The higher protein content compared to pea protein can make it an easier fit in formulations or when replacing soy protein. Faba protein is a clean label ingredient (EU) and removes allergenicity and sustainability issues as well as concerns about GMO that you may have when using soy ingredients. This protein has a light greyish colour.
