Long Haul EnergyTM
Long Haul EnergyTM is a method for making food and drink products such as bread and energy drinks by using black bean and certain other legume flours. A variety of products would be created using this method such as a low-sugar kids’ nutritional drink (Liquid Nutrition), a complex-carb endurance drink, a heart-healthy pasta, a heart-healthy bread, and much more.
Legumes are higher in protein and complex carbohydrates than wheat or rice, have a relatively low glycemic index, generally provide more long-term energy in food products than wheat- or rice- based products alone, and can partially or wholly substitute for wheat and rice. The CDC found the obesity rate in Americans is 42.4% and continuing to increase. With many Americans making health a priority and the high obesity rates, these legume-based products could significantly shift people in a much healthier direction with their diets.
