Optein® Lightly Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein

Optein®, a lightly hydrolyzed wheat protein with greater than 90% protein content and rich in peptide-bonded glutamine, is ideal for use in products that aid in muscle recovery following exercise. Such products include nutritional bars and beverages. Produced by a unique manufacturing process, Optein® possesses good solubility in water and other liquids. It has a non-bitter flavor profile compared to soy protein, thereby reducing the need for the addition of flavor-masking agents to create products that are both tasty and nutritious. Additionally, Optein® can act as a suitable replacement for L-cysteine in reducing dough mixing time and in improving dough extensibility in bakery product applications.
