Potential of plant proteins for ingredient and product development
Increased demand for plant proteins has led to significant focus and developments in the field of novel sources of plant-based proteins and their extraction, generating greater potential for improved protein fortification during product development. This project will develop techniques to produce protein rich ingredients cost and time efficiently. Processing techniques will be developed to further improve protein performance and the project will focus on novel plant protein sources. The project will look at how plant protein ingredients can be developed to optimise their nutritional value and technical performance. The project will also investigate consumers expectations and insights of plant proteins.
