THE BARLEY PROTEIN BREWING STORY
Currently, the most dominant plant protein ingredients are soy, wheat, and pea. Multiple new plant protein ingredients have been introduced over the last 10 years. While some have intrinsic flaws, others are a great welcome to the toolbox of food formulators. Barley protein is now gaining traction and is creating trade awareness. Consuming foods that are better for health and ecologically sustainable for the planet is often linked with alternative protein sources such as the emerging barley protein ingredients. These “grain solutions” are shifting away from the traditional and often unsustainable animal-based protein and even the heavy-loaded soy sausages.
