The rising vegetarian population and flexitarian movement, combined with the overall demand for protein recognized as essential for growth and good health, has led to an explosion in plant-based protein innovation.
Pea protein, extracted from dried and ground yellow split peas, is a popular choice today as it lies at the intersection of today’s developments – demand for protein, desire for plant-based alternatives, and the clean label trend. Pea proteins have emerged as a popular substitute or complement to other protein and non-protein ingredients.
Pea protein can be used in a wide range of applications such as snacks, beverages, meat alternatives, dairy and milk alternatives, and nutritional supplements.
