Lentein is the only vegan protein with an amino acid profile comparable to animal-based proteins, such as milk or eggs.
What is it?
Lentein Complete is a protein powder made from duckweed (water lentils).
It is free of allergens with higher levels of Essential Amino Acids and BCAA’s than any other plant protein including soy or pea.
The protein powder is highly digestible, contains Omega-3 oils, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Who is it for?
Lentein is for all responsible manufacturers in the food industry looking to make healthier food products.
Using Lentein as the main source of protein results in products that are gluten-free, soy-free, high in protein, rich in fiber, vegan, hypoallergenic, organic, natural, and non-GMO.
What problem(s) does it solve?
Leintein is very easy to incorporate into foods or supplements whilst making an impact on their nutritional label.
It’s a green protein ingredient with a mild and sweet taste, unlike other plant-based proteins derived from hemp, moringa or algae.
This means you can incorporate quite a lot of Lentein into the consumer product and easily reach levels where it can make an impact on the nutritional value for the consumer.
What makes it responsible?
Leintein is responsible because of the way it is grown.
First, the yield per acre is extremely high. The crop doubles it’s biomass in 24 – 36 hours. It is harvested every day and it only takes three weeks from initial seeding to full harvest.
Second, 98% of the water used in growing and processing the product is recycled back into the system. The process itself only takes 20 minutes so the energy demands are minimal.
Also, no chemicals are added and all nutrients used to grow the duckfeed are recycled together with the water for the “next batch.”
This also means there is no leaching of dangerous chemicals into the soil, which cannot be said for traditional agriculture.
What makes it better than competition?
Leintein stands above the competition due to its nutritional superiority.
It is the only plant-based protein that’s comparable to animal proteins such as milk or eggs. All other plant proteins have lower levels of one or more amino acids.
Additionally, Lentein is also digestible by the body to a higher degree than other plant proteins.
