Puris

PURIS is an American food company producing plant-based, non-GMO food ingredients. Puris was founded in Oskaloosa, Iowa in 1985, and is now headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The company is focused on pea production for the creation of pea-based protein, fiber, and starch ingredients.

PURIS, formerly known as World Food Processing, was founded in 1985 in Oskaloosa, Iowa, and would later move its headquarters to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2016 for a more business friendly manufacturing environment. The company makes plant-based protein, fiber, and starch ingredients primarily out of organic and non-GMO peas grown in the United States. PURIS supplies American farmers with seeds and buys back the organic and non-GMO crops from them at the end of the growing season. Once crops are harvested PURIS removes any unwanted materials such as rocks, sticks, or stems at their crop processing facility. After crops are cleaned and processed they are manufactured into PURIS products.

Products made by PURIS are organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, preservative-free, solvent-free, dairy-free, Kosher, Halal, allergen friendly, vegan, and grown and made in the United States.
