From yellow pea, PISANE™ is a nutritious, functional and sustainable whole range of plant proteins. COSUCRA’s protein range meets the challenge of a sustainable nutrition for all.
PISANE™ PLANT PROTEIN, FEED THE PLANET
The food transition is no longer an option: 9.8 billion people in 2050 and the food system accounts for 25 to 35% of current global GHG emissions (source: United Nations). To contribute to a global diet shift, we must offer healthy, affordable, and sustainable plant food while ensuring a true consumption experience. To address the global demand for a healthier and safer world, COSUCRA offers plant protein from yellow pea: PISANE™.
NUTRITIOUS: GOOD FOR ME
- AAS = 0.96 and BCAA(1) = 17.9 g/100g proteins
- High digestibility (98%)
- Low anti-nutritional factors content
- Not on the major allergen list
(1) Based on the suggested amino acids reference pattern for age group over 18 years old expressed in the report of the Joint WHO/FAO Expert Consultation from 1989
FUNCTIONAL: A TRUE EXPERIENCE
- A complete range of pea protein: specific functionalities to meet market needs
- Mainstream and Health; Nutrition markets across 4 market segments: non-dairy, (plant-based) savoury, bakery and supplements/meals replacers
SUSTAINABLE: GOOD FOR THE PLANET
- Yellow pea as a local and non-GMO plant resource
- A crop that impacts: no nitrogen fertilization, no need for irrigation, limited use of pesticides
PISANE™ IS NUTRITION-DENSE
Nutrition-density is about quantity and quality of nutrients. And PISANE™ pea protein ticks all the boxes! Its AAS is well-balanced: 0.96 (based on the FAO suggested amino acid pattern for adults over 18 years old (2007)). PISANE™ is a pea protein isolate of high purity that contains all the essential amino acids in significant amounts. PISANE™ can be easily combined with other plant proteins in order to achieve an AAS of 1. Thanks to its richness in those amino acids, PISANE™ naturally provides high levels of branched amino acids (BCAA) (17.9g/100g protein).
PISANE™‘s true digestibility is very high (98%), same as total milk proteins, and comparable to that of beef and soy proteins.
Certain compounds naturally present in leguminous such as pea and soy can hinder proteins digestion. They may reduce the digestibility of the protein and other essential nutrients by binding strongly with them, making them less bioavailable. Fortunately, the anti-nutritional factors are largely de-activated by PISANE™ production process.
PISANE™ MAKES YOU FEEL FULL LONGER
Among the macronutrients, proteins have been identified as having the most important effect on food intake. Increasing the protein composition of the diet without changing the net energy load can lead to enhanced feelings of satiety. PISANE™ pea protein is an intermediate-fast protein. That means has an intermediate rapid and strong satiation effect – between whey protein and casein. Pea protein has an effect on lowering short-term food intake.
PISANE™ HELPS BUILD AND MAINTAIN MUSCLE MASS
For the human body, adequate protein intake is crucial. Proteins are essential building blocks for the structure and metabolism of muscle, bone, and connective tissue. Proteins are frequently reported to have positive effects on muscle protein synthesis, muscle mass, muscle strength, improvement in body composition, prevention of a catabolic state, immunocompetence and ensuring optimal regeneration in the post-exertion phase.
Proteins are essential to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and start the muscle recovery process. Thanks to its composition in arginine, BCAA and iron, PISANE™ pea protein plays an important role in muscle synthesis, muscle strength enhancement and muscle recovery.
PISANE™ PEA PROTEIN: FUNCTIONAL
PISANE™ offers a whole range of pea proteins with specific functionalities depending on the application. Taste of pea protein is challenging, and COSUCRA concentrates all its knowledge and expertise to produce pea protein with a unique taste.
A UNIQUE TASTE
Thanks to our patented process, PISANE™ has an optimized taste (green taste and off notes) and can be used in a wide range of end-products. From mainstream products to high protein content, our application specialists offer solutions to pair PISANE™ with plant basis, flavour and masking agent. We can also play on the formulation to obtain the best product for the consumers.
MEET CHALLENGES OF FOOD AND NUTRITION MARKETS
PISANE™ pea protein range addresses 3 major challenges over food and beverage categories: rebalance the nutritional profile of end-products, answer plant-based market needs and fortify in plant protein.
RTD BEVERAGES, SHAKES, NON-DAIRY
Thanks to its high solubility and emulsifying capacities, PISANE™ is ideal to formulate mainstream and high protein RTD beverages, powder blends and non-dairy products.
BARS AND BAKERY
For high protein bar, gluten-free bread or biscuit fortified in protein: choose PISANE™ B9. Its low affinity for water and good emulsifying properties make PISANE™ B9 our best candidate for bars and bakery applications.
Fibration properties, emulsifying capacities, high viscosity at acid pH and high gel properties: that are the key benefits of our pea proteins for plant-based savoury and savoury markets.
PISANE™ PEA PROTEIN: SUSTAINABLE
Pea is part of the solution. Pea crop demonstrates clear environmental advantages. Peas have a symbiotic relationship with soil bacteria that allow them to use nitrogen from the air. So, pea crop does not need any additional nitrogen fertilizer inputs. This resource has another considerable agronomic advantage: the use of minimal to no irrigation. Water requirements are lower than for soy or corn because its cycle is short. Integrating a pulse into the crop rotation sequesters carbon in the soil and stores atmospheric nitrogen. This enriches the soil with nutrients for subsequent crops.
Pea is a very efficient raw material in the production of proteins: use of water, land and energy. In the rotations, the pea contributes to a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.Discover our concepts
