Tempting inspiration from our application laboratories
High protein smoothies and shakes
As nutrition plays an important role in a healthy and active lifestyle, Barentz has developed a wide range of excellent tasting smoothies and shakes based on whey protein. Whey protein isolates are an extremely good source of essential amino acids, which boost muscle building and tissue healing activities. With these great tasting products, claims can be made, including ‘no added sugars’ and ‘high in protein’.
Vegan ice cream
There is a strong movement from the standard luxury ice cream towards 'better-for-you' type ice-cream, due to health concerns. However, the challenge is to make no concession on taste as consumers perceive 'healthy' ice cream often as lacking in taste and flavor. Barentz has excellent access to a wide range of plant proteins, binding systems and flavors that enable us to provide a great tasting 'better-for-you' vegan ice cream e.g. based on chickpea, pea protein etc.
Creating the perfect ice cream is a technological challenge in adjusting texture, taste and mouth-feel, as well as achieving the right appearance. Barentz has all the building blocks to create the perfect ice cream with the best bindings systems, flavors, dairy ingredients, and as a finishing touch, a wide range of inclusions, such as chocolate, freeze-dried fruit, fruit granules, extruded grains, fudge, granolas, etc.
