Burcon completes startup and commissioning of plant

  • Print

Burcon NutraScience has commissioned a test production facility in Winnipeg for its new pea protein, called Peazazz.

The Vancouver-based company that has developed functional and nutritional plant-based proteins from soy, canola and peas has operated a research and development facility in Winnipeg since 1999 and employs about 17 people here.

The newly commissioned plant will support the company’s ongoing discussions with companies who might become potential partners with Burcon for the production and marketing of Peazazz.

Burcon has partnered with food ingredient heavy weight Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) for the production and marketing of Clarisoy, a soy protein Burcon developed that offers clarity and high-quality protein nutrition for low pH beverage systems.

Peazazz is a soluble and clean-tasting pea protein. Burcon also has developed canola protiens called Puratein, Supertein and Nutratein with unique functional and nutritional attributes.
