ST. LOUIS – DuPont Nutrition & Health has developed Supro Nugget 138 to provide protein and fiber, both soluble and insoluble, in a crunchy, textured format. Soy is the source of protein and fiber in Supro Nugget 138, which is well-suited for nutrition bars intended as breakfast alternatives or for meal replacing, according to DuPont Nutrition & Health.

Other applications include snacks, clusters, trail mix, granola-type cereal and baking applications. Supro Nugget 138 is appropriate for use in bars designed to offer moderate protein levels, such as less than 12 grams. It may be combined with other protein and fiber ingredients to reach targeted levels.

“Consumer demand for convenient, portable and healthy snacks is driving growth in the nutrition bar market,” said Kip Underwood, specialty business director, Protein Solutions, for DuPont Nutrition & Health. “But whether consumers are focused on general health, weight management or meal replacement, the widespread appeal of protein and fiber, and their ability to deliver a feeling of satiety, can be critical to the success of a snack product. Supro Nugget 138 makes it easier to provide a healthy and satisfying combination of protein and fiber along with an appealing crunch.”
