A pulse protein product, which may be an isolate, produces heat-stable solutions at low pH values and is useful for the fortification of acidic beverages such as soft drinks and sports drinks without precipitation of protein. The pulse protein product is obtained by extracting a pulse protein source material with an aqueous calcium salt solution to form an aqueous pulse protein solution, separating the aqueous pulse protein solution from residual pulse protein source, adjusting the pH of the aqueous pulse protein solution to a pH of about 1.5 to about 4.4 to produce an acidified pulse protein solution, which may be dried, following optional concentration and diafiltration, to provide the pulse protein product.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
