Artesa Chickpea Protein helps deliver delightful experience to consumers in almost any food or beverage application.

In low moisture systems, our taste, texture and the ability to maintain the structure of foods are critical components.

In high moisture systems, our small particle size, high dissolution level and suspendability mean less ‘grittiness’, a better mouthfeel, better taste and better in-product.

FUNCTIONALITY

Like No Other Plant Protein

Artesa Chickpea Protein is manufactured in a totally different manner than any plant protein on the planet. That’s what gives it its great taste.

 

But it also gives Artesa unique physical and functional characteristics that are vitally important to creating great consumer products.

 

Artesa has a very small, uniform particle size that helps it function like dairy proteins in food, supplement and beverage applications.

 

It also has high water binding capacity and foaming & emulsification properties that other plant proteins don’t – which can be critical to processing efficiency, shelf-life and final product quality.

 

 

 

PARTICLE SIZE

CLEANER LABELS

Simpler is better.

Artesa Chickpea Protein can help you simplify your labels. Our great taste means fewer sugars or masking agents are required to create a good sensory experience.

 

And our in-product functionality means fewer stabilizers – and even the removal of dairy and other ingredients for mouthfeel.

 

Better for people.

Better for the planet.

Artesa Chickpea Protein is one of the most sustainable ingredients you’ll find. Our chickpeas are grown and processed in North America - in an environmentally-friendly manner.

 

Chickpeas have a low carbon footprint, require less fertilizer and significantly lower use of water and pesticides in production. Want more? There are no GMO chickpeas – and probably never will be.
