Washington, MO. Osage Food Products has recently launched SolvPro™ Vegan Plant Protein Blends, a new line of optimized plant protein blends that combine different plant proteins and deliver targeted nutritional and functional properties for a wide range of end-use applications. The SolvPro™ product line currently has 6 SKUs, each delivering a protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) of 1.0 and offering different functionalities and benefits.
Several of the new systems are powered by EverPro®, a first-of-its-kind barley protein that dissolves almost instantly into beverages. Created by EverGrain by Anheuser-Busch InBev, EverPro® upcycles brewers’ spent grains to spectacular effect – delivering not only solubility, but better taste and texture in protein fortified nutritional beverages.
“The EverPro® protein isolate is the key ingredient in our SolvPro 008 and 009 systems, in combination with pea protein isolate and with added masking agents, this new system delivers a complete plant protein with adequate levels of all the essential amino acids to deliver a PDCAAS of 1.0, equivalent to whey protein isolates,” Bill Dickinson, President of Osage Food Products, said. “This system allows for a very high usage level and protein levels beyond anything currently on the market (>30 grams per serving) with no thick viscosity, chalkiness, or off flavors.”
EverPro® is Upcycled Certified™ and Non-GMO Project Verified.
“We’re so excited to partner with Osage Food Products on their SolvPro™ solution. It truly is a solve, with plants working harder together to give consumers what they crave: great taste, nutrition, and sustainability in their plant-based protein shakes,” Greg Belt, CEO of EverGrain, says. “Both EverPro® and SolvPro™ also go great in dairy alternatives, coffee and nutrition bars.”
The SolvPro™ line with EverPro® delivers a wide range of plant-forward, protein-fortified nutrition options for today’s modern athlete. Scientific in-vitro trials1 recently showed EverPro® to have one of the highest protein true-digestibility scores and plant-protein DIAAS scores, as well as one of the fastest protein absorption speeds as compared with whey, soy and premium pea.
Osage Food Products offer its customers a full range of options from supplying just the ingredients themselves or a complete turn-key flavored system from their subsidiary Osage Flavors. For more information, please call Dennis Reid at 636-390-9477.

EverPro, created by AB InBev’s sustainable ingredient company EverGrain, is the world’s first commercially available upcycled barley protein. EverPro was deliberately formulated and is scientifically proven to have unmatched solubility and viscosity levels compared to whey or pea and is at or above parity in absorption and digestibility. Makes it a great fit for sports and nutrition beverage applications. Because EverPro is made using a proprietary process to upcycle barley protein from brewer’s spent grain (BSG), it emits lower carbon and uses significantly less land and water, it is one of the most sustainable proteins on the planet and is certified by the Upcycled Food Association. EverPro’s first ever large-scale facility came online June of this year in St. Louis, MO.
