ST. LOUIS — Solae and Novozymes have announced a partnership to develop and market soy proteins with specific functional and nutritional benefits. The partnership combines experience with Solae’s background in developing, producing and marketing soy protein products and Novozymes’ work contributing enzyme technology to create ingredients with benefits for food manufacturers and consumers.
"Our new soy protein ingredients will work in a broader range of food applications, making it easier for consumers across the globe to choose healthy, great tasting foods," said Torkel Rhenman, chief executive officer of Solae.
The companies will work to develop soy proteins with enhanced flavor, solubility and nutritional benefits that will expand opportunities for food manufacturers while meeting consumer expectation of flavor and health benefits.
Soy proteins may help reduce cholesterol levels, which may in turn reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
