Plant-based lifestyles are taking centre stage, revolutionising consumption behavior, foodservices and retail shelves alike. A shift towards a diet that is healthier, more sustainable and animal friendly has been evident globally, but is it the same for consumers in Asia-Pacific?
What health benefits do consumers expect from their protein intake and sources? Where do we see opportunities with plant-based proteins?
Join Chris Weng, Regional Growth Platform leader for Plant-based Proteins at Ingredion Asia-Pacific, where she will present consumer insights on this growing trend, and how pulse proteins are well positioned to ride this wave.
Have a plant-based vision for your specialized food application? From expert nutrition and regulatory guidance, to our centers of excellence for plant-based dairy and meat products, we put our deep capabilities and ingredients portfolio to work to set your products apart. Here are just a few areas where we're helping customers break through with plant proteins:
The future of protein is plant-based — and pulses lead the way. These nutritional wonders are rich in protein and fiber, free of GMOs and low in allergenicity. They enable clean labels and on-trend claims that set your products apart and strengthen their appeal, especially for consumers moving away from soy and wheat protein.
That's why Ingredion’s ever-growing portfolio of plant-based proteins includes isolates, concentrates and flours made exclusively from non-wheat and non-soy-based ingredients like peas, lentils, faba beans, chickpeas and more.
And it's why we've invested in new manufacturing facilities for safe, sustainable plant protein sourcing and processing. By ensuring consistent quality and reliable performance, we're making pulse flours and proteins easy to work with — so you can produce products with great taste, texture and appearance.
