Leverage pea protein power across a variety of applications
The demand for plant-based protein-rich products is a major trend that has emerged and influenced the purchasing decisions of consumers in recent years. This represents numerous opportunities for food and beverage manufacturers to add this valued ingredient to their products and enhance their nutritional value, appealing to health-conscious consumers, as well as those with specific dietary requirements.
Protein claims can also be twinned with label declarations such as ‘gluten-free’, ‘plant-based’ and ‘non-soybased’ to widen product appeal even further. Discover what Ingredion’s pulse protein can do for your portfolio.
Pulses have resonated among consumers in recent years and their appeal is showing no signs of slowing. Ingredion research indicates that two-thirds of consumers are aware of pulses being used as an ingredient such as flour or protein. They also associate multiple benefits with pulses, with 58% believing pulses to be healthy and 37% believing they deliver on satiety, offering a ‘fuller for longer’ feeling.1
Plant-based proteins can also help manufacturers to tap into the meat and dairy alternatives markets. Data indicates that these are growing significantly. For example, in Europe, 19% of Spanish, 15% of Italian and 13% of French consumers are drinking dairy-free (or plant-based) milk for health reasons.2
