The role for peanuts amid the protein boom - Golden Peanut Company16 Jan 2018 There is a major trend toward high-protein products and the Golden Peanut Company has created potential for peanut protein. “We make and market a full line of peanut flours which are high in protein, ranging from 40-50 percent,” says Bruce Kotz. “They’re plant based, they’re all natural and very stable. They’re kosher, GMO-free and halal. It’s the perfect ingredient should you want to enhance protein in foods such as nutritional bars and confections.” Suitable applications include seasonings and snack flavorings. All the company’s peanut flours are roasted in order to give natural flavor along with natural protein enhancement.
