Food Spotlight: Plant-based NON-GMO and Organic Food Ingredient Supplier Green Boy Launches Plant-Meat Protein™


LOS ANGELES and AMSTERDAM, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Boy Group announced today that it has launched Plant-Meat Protein™; a functional plant-based protein powder that is NON-GMO and developed as 'meat' grade. Plant-Meat Protein™ enhances mouthfeel, boosts nutritional properties and enlarges the textured aspects in plant-based meat products.

Plant-Meat Protein™ is introduced to the food industry for the production of plant-based meat like plant-based burgers, nuggets, sausages but also to produce textured plant-based proteins (TPP) in the form of crisps or granules. Plant-Meat Protein™ comes in four different types of protein made from Pea, Mung Bean, Fava Bean and Chickpea.

"We are beyond excited to have launched Plant-Meat Protein™ because of the rapidly growing demand for plant-based meat by consumers," says Peter van Dijken, Green Boy Group Co-Founder. "Green Boy already supplies the leading brands in the plant-based meat industry and with Plant-Meat Protein™ we hope to enlarge our footprint in the North American and European market and make it more readily available via our distribution channels for food manufacturers who focus on producing plant-based meat and are looking for the next generation of plant-based proteins."

"Plant-based protein is a key ingredient in the formulation of a plant-based meat product," explains Frederik Otten, Co-Founder of Green Boy Group. "This market is evolving with lightning speed and plant-based meat products made with vital wheat gluten or soy protein are not as popular due to allergy concerns along with whey and casein proteins as they are of dairy origin. With Plant-Meat Protein™ we offer a line of more functional, sustainable and healthier plant-based proteins as the building block for the next plant-based meat hit product on the supermarket shelves, in the fast-food chains or online," added Otten.

Green Boy Group, founded in 2016 by Frederik Otten and Peter van Dijken, is a leading non-GMO and organic plant-based food ingredients supplier in North America and Europe. Green Boy Group is based in Los Angeles, California and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Industry News: Ener-C Announces NSF Non-GMO True North Certification



VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pauling Labs, the maker of Ener-C multivitamin drink mix, is extremely proud to announce that Ener-C has achieved NSF Non-GMO True North certification of all ingredients.

Since the birth of the brand in 2013, their goal has always been to attain third party certification of Ener-C's non-GMO status. Although Ener-C has always been non-GMO, they hold a firm belief that if you claim it you need to verify it by a respected third party. Pauling Labs chose to work with NSF True North because they are an internationally recognized verification and testing organization.

Since 1955, NSF has been committed to protecting human health and safety worldwide.  Athletes who wish to compete in the Olympics and world sporting events can only take NSF certified supplements.  "NSF is the gold standard for all supplement testing worldwide, which is why we decided to go with NSF's True North Non-GMO testing regime for Ener-C," said Richard Pollock, President, Pauling Labs.

Pollock and his team believe that consumers have the right to know what's in their products and have the right to make the healthiest decisions when purchasing those products.  Although there continues to be a debate over the health effects of GMO ingredients, Pollock believes there should be no question as to who owns the seeds and plants: Mother Earth, not corporations.  "Pauling Labs and Ener-C are committed to continually doing better and improving the lives of our consumers, our employees, and our communities," said Pollock.


About Ener-C and Pauling Labs:
Ener-C is a multivitamin drink mix made with real fruit powders that was created to address two important basic human truths.  The first truth is that we are all, by nature, thirsty creatures.  The second is that we all could do with more energy.

There were very few choices out there when it came to finding a product that was healthy, natural, non-GMO,  caffeine and stimulant free, low in sugar, and made by companies consumers could trust and respect. Pauling Labs saw this as an opportunity to create a product people could enjoy taking and feel good about. Pollock stated, "Everything we do at Pauling Labs is based around the belief that we can all be better, do better, and feel better."
