The Pulse Of Pea Protein
Consumers in the Western world are becoming more comfortable with plant-based proteins, which subsequently evolve as a central pillar of new product development. To service the surge in natural and or organic food products, the demand for alternative protein sources like rice, oat, canola, potato, and even mung bean are often outstripping availability.
Drawing more protein from plants is an activity that has become a priority for specialty ingredient companies such as Cargill, ADM, DowDuPont, Roquette and Cosucra. Global pea protein isolate sales are expected to quadruple by 2025. A huge part of this sales increase is due to its use in plant-based meat products.
