Who we are

Whether you are looking to clean up your label, add appealing attributes to your food or beverage product or improve the nutritional value of your brand, Essentia Protein Solutions can help you reach your goals.

Essentia Protein Solutions is a global producer of animal protein solutions for the food and beverage industry. All Essentia ingredients are derived from natural raw materials originating from beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb and fish. The advanced fractionation methods used in our modern facilities only involve thermal and mechanical processing, without using food additives of any kind.

Ingredients from Essentia Protein Solutions fall into three core categories:

Functionality

Functional ingredients with excellent water-binding and gelling properties ideal for increasing yield, improving viscosity and providing emulsifying attributes to meat, dairy and pet food applications.

Taste

Authentic stocks and broths cooked from meaty bones following traditional culinary principles. Alongside a series of specialty fats, they provide excellent mouthfeel and natural umami to soups, sauces and ready meals.

Nutrition

Hydrolyzed proteins and collagen peptides ideal for boosting the nutritional value of your food or beverage brand. They are a great source of amino acids and can go directly into any nutrition or beauty brand as clean label ingredients.

Where we make a difference

Essentia Protein Solutions offers a wide variety of value to many different consumer product categories. From a unique range of meat, skin, bone and blood raw materials, we extract ingredients that bring the very best of nature directly into your formulation.

What we produce are real food ingredients that consumers recognize and understand. We do not add anything, and we supply you with a clean label ingredient.

Essentia Protein Solutions, owned by the Lauridsen Group Incorporated (LGI), is the result of a merger between three significant protein specialists: BHJ Ingredients, Proliant Meat Ingredients and Proliant Health. In 2018, Essentia Protein Solutions acquired Danish-based protein manufacturer Scanflavour A/S. This acquisition has seen Essentia Protein Solutions cement its position as the world's leading producer of animal proteins.

Our customers include food manufacturers and ingredient blenders. Through a strong international network of dedicated distributors, we operate across more than 60 countries in key sectors: meat, savory, nutrition, dairy and pet food.
