SUPRO 90% PROTEIN NUGGETS Hygiena has expanded its testing portfolio with PCR-based systems to cover the entire contamination detection spectrum. The range now includes polymerase chain reaction (PCR)- based systems to offer reliable contamination detection from sample collection and screening of indicator organisms to specific microbial characterisation. These products are suitable for large and small manufacturers of fast-moving consumer goods, as well as large corporate laboratories and contract testing facilities serving the food and beverage sector. The all-inclusive product line has been specifically designed to enable the timely detection of quality and safety issues, to give manufacturers the confidence that their quality assurance programmes operate to the highest standards. An expansion of DuPont Nutrition & Health’s 90% protein nugget product range will allow food manufacturers to differentiate their products in the snacks, cereals and nutrition bar market. With their high protein level, the SUPRO nuggets can help formulators to achieve desired protein levels while using liberal amounts of nuts, seeds and fruit to add visual appeal. Dupont says the nuggets are unique not only for their exceptionally high level of protein, but also because they are label friendly. Nutritionally robust with a neutral flavour and crispy texture, the nuggets come in a range of textures, shapes and sizes.
