MGP’s Optein®, a lightly hydrolyzed wheat protein, is a plant-based protein alternative that effectively enhances protein content levels in bakery products, nutritional bars and beverages, as well as vegetarian and vegan applications.
Optein reduces mix time and increases dough extensibility, making it a suitable L-cysteine replacer in bakery product applications.
Optein also possesses approximately double the glutamine content of soy and whey proteins, which can be beneficial to muscle recovery after exercise.
