For immediate release- Red River Commodities expands Suntein™ ingredient line to include Ready-to-Eat option. Fargo, ND, November 15, 2021 – Red River Commodities, Inc. announces pasteurized Suntein™ RTE to its portfolio of sunflower protein options. “The ability to offer Suntein™ RTE creates a new opportunity for formulators to use our unique, sunflower protein in applications that are not undergoing a validated control process in production and require ready-to-eat ingredients. Bar, beverage, and dry mix applications will benefit from this pasteurized, 51% naturally derived protein flour made from high-oleic sunflower kernels. The nutritional and organoleptic properties of Suntein™ complement other plant-based proteins. The protein and fiber content have proven successful in new bakery, pasta, and Keto diet products launched in 2021.” said Tara Jensen, Suntein™ Business Manager at Red River Commodities. “Suntein™ and Suntein™ RTE are available to meet the demands of the one bag user to full truckload customers within short lead times. Suntein™ is a sustainable, non-GMO alternative to soy, wheat, whey or other allergenic plant-based proteins that meets the clean label demands which are top of mind for today’s consumers.” said Eric Christianson, President and CEO of Red River Commodities. The launch of Suntein™ in October 2020 and addition of Suntein™RTE demonstrates Red River Commodities’ continued commitment to providing innovative natural food ingredients of the highest quality standards, without compromise.
