Clean. Green. Protein. LENTEIN®.

LENTEIN® is a unique high-protein food product containing the nutritional qualities of water lentils. Grown in an aqua farm and minimally processed, this incredible protein-packed plant powder has the capability to positively impact both an individual’s nutrition and the world’s food supply.

Our world is in crisis

By 2030 the world’s fresh water supply is expected to fall short of demand by as much as 40%. Did you know that it takes 20,000 liters to produce just one kilogram of meat? It’s time to rethink what we eat and create sustainable solutions for the food industry. That’s where amino acid-filled and antioxidant-rich LENTEIN® comes in. An impressive 98% of the water required to produce LENTEIN® gets recycled for the next batch!

Sustainability

LENTEIN® is produced in an aqua farm where 98% of the required water gets recycled and has been described as carbon neutral.

Supply

Parabel has developed a proprietary growth system that allows the plants to thrive so that harvest takes place every day. For industries looking to secure both supply and price, this is an extremely welcome factor.

Functionality

LENTEIN® Complete is a fresh green protein powder that has been successfully formulated in dry-mix goods like chips, crackers, snack-mixes, bars and cereal clusters and since it is dispersible it also mixes very well into protein shakes, sports drinks or meal replacements. The drink gives a pleasant mouth feel due to its foaming capability.

Nutrition

Described as the world’s most complete food source, LENTEIN® is higher in essential amino acids than soy or pea protein and is comparable to whey. LENTEIN® has been blended into cold-pressed juices, protein beverages, and healthy snacks.

The Process

It takes a unique process to produce a unique food product like Lentein®. From the aqua farm to the cold extraction process to the final protein-packed product, Lentein® keeps sustainability in focus.

How Lentein® could impact the world

Agriculture uses 70% of the world’s fresh water supply, and by 2030, the total demand for fresh water will exceed supply by 40%. In order to sustain the growing population, this means we need to rethink what we eat; enter, Lentein®. Grown in aqua farms and harvested every day, Lentein® has been described as both carbon neutral and a complete food source. Incredibly, 98% of the water used to produce Lentein® is recycled! Through the introduction of Lentein® as a food source, we are able to take better care of the planet we inhabit.

How Lentein® could impact the individual

By 2050 the world’s population will reach nine billion people, which means food production will need to increase significantly. Food production processes will likely turn to intensive farming and genetically modified foods, compromising quality and nutrition. We don’t know yet how this will impact our health.

Lentein® provides individual consumers with more essential nutrients than most sources of protein. Lentein® protein powder has been successfully blended in dry-mix goods like chips, crackers, snack mixes, bars, and cereal clusters. It also blends well into protein powders used for sports drinks or meal replacement shakes. Lentein® does not contain any of the allergens associated with conventional ingredients such as Soy or Dairy based products.
