According to Innova, protein is expected to maintain its position as a key ingredient in the industry. As consumers become increasingly aware of what benefits their health and wellness, protein’s wide range of uses may provide ample space for innovative and exciting product developments.
The number of food and beverages launches featuring pea protein has trebled in the last five years (Global, 2014-2018) with 60% growth in dairy alternative launches with plant proteins (Global, 2018 vs 2017). Consumer demand for protein-enriched products now extends beyond sports nutrition, to include senior nutrition, weight management and overall health and wellness. It is certainly no longer the domain of the infant nutrition category or “body building” space.
Blending techniques, which combine various plant proteins of different origins in such a way that the final product’s amino acid profile is virtually identical to that of high-quality animal proteins, is going to become standard practice in vegan options.
