New paths for protein: Precision fermentation, sustainability expand the options – digital magazine
Finding the right protein—or blend of proteins—to add to a food, beverage or dietary supplement requires consideration from multiple angles beyond formulation and finished product appeal. Some traditional protein sources include meat, poultry, whey, casein, pea, rice, egg and soy. With the capacity to produce bioidentical animal proteins sans animals, precision fermentation is the latest buzz. It appeals to folks concerned about traditional farming methods and sustainability. However, manufacturing capacity is a challenge.

Takeaways for Your Business:

  • High-protein sweet treats saw 1,727% growth and $2.6 million in total revenue the past year.
  • 72% of consumers claim sustainability is a “very to somewhat important” purchase consideration.
  • Whether a protein is animal- or plant-based, amino acid composition and digestibility score matter.
