Heliaflor® sunflower proteins in comparison

Depending on the protein content, two different product variants are available. Apart from the protein content, they vary in smell, taste, colour and the recommended application areas. Both sunflower proteins not only contain high-quality protein, but are also characterised by their content of dietary fibres and various B-vitamins.

Amino acids

Because of the gentle manufacturing process Heliaflor® is rich in valuable plant protein. It is the native form of protein. Both sunflower proteins contain all eight essential amino acids, especially sulfurous amino acids as methionine, which can be used for enhancement of legumes, which are low in theses amino acids. Vice versa legumes add value to sunflower proteins because of their high content of essential amino acid lysine.
Carbohydrates
Main carbohydrates in Heliaflor® 45 and Heliaflor® 55 are saccharose as a sugar and indigestible fibers.
Dietary fibres
The term "fiber" indicates mainly vegetable nutrition which cannot or only incompletely be absorbed in the human intestine. They are partially processed by micro-organisms, but can also be excreted unmodified. Hereby they contribute to regulation of digestion.

Both sunflower proteins Heliaflor® 45 and 55 are made of shelled sunflower seeds, which reduces the amount of fiber. Nevertheless content in final product is high with ca. 17 % for Heliaflor® 45 and 19 % for Heliaflor® 55 and is also for athletes wholesome.
