World Food Processing’s PURISPea Receives GRAS Status

World Food Processing, L.L.C., the only USA grown and manufactured pea protein supplier, has announced that it received a “letter of no objection” from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for PURISPea un-hydrolyzed and hydrolyzed pea protein. The “letter of no objection” confirms that the FDA does not have question for the GRAS status of Pea protein through the basis of scientific procedures.

PURISPea is the first pea protein isolate grown and manufactured in the USA. It is known for its unique characteristics and clean, superior flavor. “Achieving GRAS status adds yet another layer of confidence and another advantage for manufacturers who want to create foods and beverages with mass-market appeal,” says Tyler Lorenzen, president of World Food Processing’s proteins and ingredient subsidiary.


The GRAS status confirms that PURISPea is safe for use as a protein source in foods such as bakery products, cereals, snack foods, smoothies, beverages, soups, imitation dairy products, dry instant milk shake mixes and protein drinks, instant powdered nutritional beverages, vegetarian products/meat analogues and meal replacement bars.

“PURISPea checks all the boxes in terms of today’s food trends: It’s clean, non-GMO, devoid of the eight common allergens and it’s lightly processed with no harsh chemicals, all while being the only non-GMO pea protein grown and manufactured in the U.S.” World Food Processing’s state-of-the-art facilities are certified organic and all located in the USA.
