C-Merak Foods offers a line of Canadian made plant-based products from the Faba bean.
As fuel for a healthier future, all of our ingredients are:
C-Merak ingredients are ideally suited for a wide range of nutritionally balanced and sustainable applications. The natural characteristics of Faba ingredients can support flavour, texture and colour profiles to meet diverse global preferences.
High in amino acids and micronutrients, Faba protein makes an excellent ingredient for balanced nutrition. Our concentrate has neutral colour and texture with a neutral pulse flavour - perfect for consumer appealing products enriched with clean quality protein such as meat extenders, proteins powders, cereal bars, protein bars, bakery goods and beverages.
Faba starch is a versatile ingredient. A natural binder and viscosity enhancer make it a desired food ingredient for adding thickness and highlighting flavours. Starch has a long shelf life valuable for baking goods or supplementing meals, sauces, dressings and snack foods. The starch is low in fat and digests slowly supporting multiple uses across food and feed applications. The unique properties of the starch are being applied in innovative solutions for manufacturing textiles and biodegradable products.
Baking cookies or treats for pets? Faba flour can replace wheat flour in pasta, snacks, cakes, breads and so much more. The naturally high protein and fibre content will elevate the nutritional profile of your products.
Hulls are the protective layer that surrounds the bean. We remove the hulls prior to the dry milling process. Similar to pea fibre, faba fibre has growing potential as a fibre-rich ingredient in the food and feed industries. The natural fertilizer properties of the hulls create an ideal chemical free substance to manage soil health and enhance crop yields.
Product developers who are seeking new combinations of global and local flavours for healthier great tasting options can benefit from our custom blends. We are excited to work with individual customers to meet innovative product needs. From unique formulations to custom concentrate, C-Merak Foods can help bring your product ideas to life.
