2019 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar

Title: Creative Reformulation of Protein Foods: Five Steps Toward a Sustainable Protein

Presentation Description:

With a surging global population to feed, it is crucial to develop protein foods and beverages from sustainable sources. Such products also are increasingly valued by consumers, although they often lack the texture and taste appeal of traditional foods. For example, the current approach of using a single source of plant protein to mimic meats is suboptimal. This presentation takes an overview of protein sources, technologies and offers practical suggestions on what can be done now to improve the quality of sustainable protein products. It will then discuss more sophisticated technologies that may well hold the future of new and sustainable industrial proteins.
