  • We are so excited to share our new capabilities after Balchem acquired Zumbro River Brand. Balchem now offers Z-Crisps® which are available in multiple protein sources and innovative flavor combinations. Z-Crisps® can be used as topical on ice cream, yogurt or any treat for protein improvement. They can also be used as an inclusion in snack bars and other applications, depending on the protein claim a manufacturing customer wants to make the product can be formulated to meet the specification. 

    This allows bar and snack manufacturers to choose their optimal product size, protein source and flavor. Some of the proteins available are Whey, Pea, Cocoa Flavored Whey, Cocoa Flavored Pea as well as Pea & Brown Rice. Our comprehensive technical specifications outline the full ingredient statement and nutritional information that a formulator and their regulatory team would need for preparing their label when using our inclusions. In addition to this, our applications team works directly with our customers to determine the best options for use of our lipid-based inclusions and protein crisps for optimal product quality.

    We could not be more excited for this acquisition and look forward to our future capabilities. Balchem is committed to innovation and we plan to continue fulfilling that commitment. It’s safe to say nutritional inclusions are here to stay and we firmly believe they will continue to grow in their prevalence in the market place. We continue to challenge ourselves to develop new products to support our customers in this arena .
