Potato Protein Isolates May Help Create Better Gluten-free Baked Goods

Celiac.com 06/18/2012 - Following US approval (SA GRAS) of its natural potato protein isolates, Dutch ingredients firm Solanic is touting their protein as a way for manufacturers to craft higher quality gluten-free baked goods. The protein is approved at levels of .01 to 10% in manufactured baked goods.

According to Solanic manager for gluten-free, Paul Hart, the protein could bring the shelf-life for gluten-free bread products up to one-week.

The company also claims that their protein also boasts a favorable amino acid profile that may help boost the nutritional value of products in which it is included.

Solanic's protein isolates have been on the European market since 2008 and in the US market since 2009.

The company is working to develop a gluten-free bread prototype by October 2012, and to develop cake prototypes thereafter.

Stay tuned to see if the company's efforts help to put better gluten-free baked goods on store shelves in the near future.

I appreciate you.

This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%....

Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. If I ever get glutened by something then I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I h...

Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr a...

This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
