FrieslandCampina Ingredients will be launching two new plant-based protein concepts at this years’ Fi Europe (6-8 December). Built using its innovative Plantaris™ Pea Isolate 85 A, the applications have been devised to respond directly to growing consumer demand for healthy plant-based indulgence, and will demonstrate how brands can create protein-rich products that deliver on both taste and nutrition.

To help brands capitalise on the market opportunity for healthy indulgence, FrieslandCampina Ingredients will be launching two new plant protein concepts – a tasty chocolate ready-to-drink (RTD) application and a high protein pudding – at Fi Europe’s New Product Zone.
