Alfalfa Protein Concentrate (APC-50)

APC-50 is a protein concentrate from alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.). It is isolated in a mild and environmentallyfriendly manner allowing it to fit optimally in your allergen-free, non-GMO food formulations. APC-50 has excellent nutritional properties, combined with fresh green flavour notes and an attractive green colour. Its high vegetable protein content and its high essential amino acids (particularly branched chain) content make the product very suitable for preparation of highly nutritional food products.
