Heliaflor® is the world's first organic sunflower protein that is always available on the market.
Sunflower seeds from organic farming are carefully processed to produce the valuable protein. Particularly noteworthy is its emulsifying capacity and gentle nutty flavour. Heliaflor® acts as binding agent, gives consistency and stabilizes. An amount of nearly 10 % glutamic acid supports its use in spicy food. In addition, it contains all essential amino acids, B-vitamins, valuable polyphenols and is rich in fiber.
In comparison to other plant proteins we can guarantee for Heliaflor® a sufficient availability at any time. Sunflower produces the fourth-largest oil crop after oil and coconut palm and soy. It is grown worldwide and availability of the raw material can be ensured.
Heliaflor® 55 contains up to 55 % protein in dry mass. It is obtained by a special cold pressing of peeled organic sunflower seeds and grounded finely. The special manufacturing process is patent pending. In an additional manufacturing step Heliaflor® 55 is CO2-extracted to reduce amount of fat and increase protein content. To guarantee constantly high product quality entire production process is accompanied by us in collaboration with accredited laboratories.
Origin of raw material is EU-agriculture. Production takes place in Germany. Heliaflor® is inherently non-GMO.
Compared to Heliaflor® 45 Heliaflor® 55 almost contains no fat. Fat binding capacity is stronger and water binding ability a little weaker than in Heliaflor® 45. Heliaflor® 55 has a beige color and is relatively neutral in taste. Therefore Heliaflor® 55 can be used in a wide range of products regardless of its flavor.
Both Heliaflor® variants can generally be combined with each other and also with other binders.
