Plant Protein is Growing in Beverage Applications
In her article, Plant Protein is Growing in Beverage Applications, Donna Berry of Food Business News writes"
“In the move to offer something new, a growing number of non-soy plant-based ingredients are appearing, including cereals such as rice, oats and barley ...we are also seeing an increase in nuts, such as almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, walnuts and macadamias, as well as coconut and more unusual options such as lupin, hemp and flaxseed.”
"Protein’s momentum as a power nutrient in beverages continues in 2019, with new sources and formats making the satiety-inducing, refueling, muscle-building macronutrient more appealing and accessible in the mainstream marketplace. With many consumers heeding nutritional advice to increase their intake of plant-based foods, more and varied plant proteins are being added to all types of refrigerated and shelf-stable beverages."
Lu Ann Williams, director of innovation, Innova Market Insights, The Netherlands. adds, “More consumers are adopting vegetarian or lactose-free diets, while others are turning to plant-based foods for other perceived health benefits”.
