Independent, grower-owned processor of almonds and almond products Harris Woolf Almonds has launched two new ingredient formulations that are available to retailers for private label partnerships.
The items include a GMO-free roasted almond protein powder and an unrefined almond oil made from 100% food-grade almonds.
The products were produced in response to consumer demand for sustainable plant-based protein products. The protein powder is said to have a higher protein count and lower fat content than almond meal, two factors that make it an ideal ingredient solution for plant-based protein blends, sports nutrition, defatted nut butters and other product applications.
The new almond oil is traceable back to the grower and can be used in cooking, cosmetics or other premium quality products.
“Our team continually strives to deliver novel value to our customers — so they can do the same in turn for their customers,” said Mike Briano, vice president of sales and marketing at HWA. “These new ingredients give health- and quality-conscious food and beverage businesses the tools they’ve been requesting. And they’re ready today, so you can be first to get tomorrow’s products on the shelves.”
Headquartered in Coalinga, Calif., Harris Woolf Almonds has partnered with family farms and large consumer goods food and beverage companies for the last 30 years.
