Improving Texture in Plant-Based Proteins
Plant-based protein is a recent breakout food and beverage trend which is here to stay. Millennials and even younger consumers choose plant-based proteins because of their focus on sustainability, health and wellbeing, and newness of the products they eat. Older consumers, many of whom are interested in healthy aging, want products with enhanced protein to cope with the muscle-related challenges of getting older. The quest for dairy-free and soy-free products also is driving the rise in alternative sources of protein such as pea, pulse, nut and seed, quinoa, rice, hemp, potato, and oat proteins, among others.
