Extruded Grain and Protein Crisps
PGP International is an extrusion specialist and offers an assortment of extruded crisp products which are made using soy, pea protein and rice. We are a leading manufacturer and supplier of protein crisps and grain crisps for the Cereal, Energy and Nutritional Bar industry, both domestically and internationally.
Our protein crisp and grain crisp products are made from soy, pea protein and rice, and include a wide variety of breakfast cereals, crisp grains, soy proteins and fibre particulates. They also provide fibre, vitamins, minerals and other nutraceutical ingredients for added nutritional and health benefits.
Our products come in different shapes, sizes and textures, and are found in some of the most famous chocolate, granola, health and nutritional bar brands, as well as in yoghurt and ice cream toppings, snack products and infant cereals.
Our highly skilled Research and Development team works closely with our customers to explore and create new, innovative extrusion technologies to enhance and improve their existing formulations.
With over 25 years of extrusion experience, we also have the advanced expertise to modify our products to our customers’ own exacting specifications. We can customise our crisp particulates and snacks by formulation, size, shape, colour, density and texture to help our customers create new and exciting products and expand their own product portfolios.
Soy Protein Crisps
Our soy protein crisps are an important, healthy ingredient for bars, granola, snacks, yoghurt and dairy toppings.
Research by the Food and Drug Administration has found that just 6.25 grams of soy protein per serving size in food which is low in fat, sodium and cholesterol can help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. This makes our soy protein crisps an ideal ingredient for food that’s used as part of a low saturated fat and reduced cholesterol diet.
Pea Protein Crisps
According to a recent study, pea proteins can stimulate the intestinal secretion of peptides that tell the central nervous system to reduce food intake.
Our pea protein crisps are hexane-free and can be used in the production of bars, cereals, confections and energy and nutrition foods.
Rice Protein Crisps
We use our state of the art extrusion technologies to produce a wide range of rice protein crisps to match our customers’ requirements.
Our rice protein crisps are ideal for use in the production of bars, cereals, energy and nutrition foods, granola, snacks, yoghurt and dairy toppings. They are vegetarian, gluten-free, hypoallergenic and easy to digest, so they are the perfect protein alternative for gluten sensitive consumers or people on restricted diets.
Other Grain Crisps
We also produce a variety of other gluten free grain crisps, including garbanzo bean, quinoa and sorghum. These grains are becoming increasingly popular and well known for their health benefits, as well as being high in protein and fibre.
Our garbanzo bean, quinoa and sorghum crisps can be used in the production of bars and granola.
