Video: Plant Protein Power

Nutritional expert provides insight on emerging plant proteins and how they can impact product development.

The continued popularity of protein in various natural products has crossed paths with the growing desire to consume more vegetarian nutrition. While soy has long represented plants in the protein market, other forms of plant-derived proteins are gaining favor as formulation considerations. During SupplySide West, the Foodscape Group’s Rachel Cheatham, Ph.D., stopped by the SupplySide Experience booth to talk about proteins from pea, microalgae and other plant, including what they offer consumer markets and how they are influencing product development.

For a more detailed look at the wide range of plant- and animal-based proteins, check out the INSIDER image gallery Popular Forms of Protein and recent feature Examining Popular Forms of Protein.
