Plant proteins: ingredients and product development

Project title: Potential of plant proteins for ingredient and product development
Member Funded Research project number: 147089

Why are we undertaking this project?

Increased demand for plant proteins has led to significant focus and development of novel sources of plant-based proteins and their extraction, generating greater potential for improved protein fortification during product development.

What are we doing as part of this project?

Developing techniques to produce protein-rich ingredients (from plants) in a cost and time-efficient manner. We’ll look at how these ingredients will be developed to optimise their nutritional value and technical performance and will investigate consumers’ expectations.
