Better ingredients means better pancakes.
From the very beginning of The Protein Pancake we set out to use great quality, Australian ingredients to provide an authentic and homely recipe. See below for information on our ingredients!
Laucke flour from Strathalbyn, South Australia. This is a specially selected flour best suited to our pancake batter.
Whey Protein Isolate
Whey Isolate is simply whey protein that has been filtered in a process to help remove the lactose in the powder itself. This is to create a leaner and lower fat protein source.
We source ours from Australia and if there are supply shortages, the USA.
Pea Protein Isolate
Pea protein powder is made from yellow split peas and does not contain any dairy. It’s naturally gluten-free and hypoallergenic.
We use a blend of protein's to get the best pancake texture.
Baking Powder & Baking Soda
Did you know Baking soda is Sodium Bicarbonate? And Baking powder is just sodium bicarbonate mixed with an acid, usually cream of tartar, and cornstarch. It needs moisture and heat to make carbon dioxide.
We use both in our mix to create the rise and resultant fluffy protein pancakes you know and love.
Maca is a cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale.
Maca is native to the high plateaus of the Peruvian Andes mountain range.
We include it in our pancake mix for it's health benefits and earthy taste!
We use a fine Sea salt from Olssons, here in South Australia.
Thaumatin (natural sweetener)
Thaumatin is a natural sweetener which is sourced from the katemfe fruit, found in the West African rainforests.
Thaumatin is considered a protein and not a carbohydrate, unlike a lot of other natural sweeteners, and contains 4 calories per gram. Its level of sweetness is rather potent in comparison to sugar and therefore only a tiny amount is required, which is exactly why we selected it for our pancakes!
The flavourings we use across our mixes are; Buttermilk Powder Natural, Vanilla Powder Natural, Chocolate Royal Powder Natural, Burnt Caramel Powder Flavour Natural, Smoked Meat Rashers Seasoning Natural and Maple Spray-dried Powder Flavour Natural.
We source these from a flavouring company which produces all the powders in VIC, Australia.
All pancake mixes contain Dairy from the Whey Protein.
