With consumer health awareness and environmental issues related to climate change, the alternative protein market is ushering in a market stage of rapid development, which is mainly driven by the following three factors.
First, the global population continues to grow and is expected to exceed 10 billion in 2050. How to solve food supply and nutritional intake has become a hot spot.
Second, the outbreak of the epidemic has promoted consumers' attention to health. Plant-based products have an advantage in the overall health solutions. At the same time, the global vegetarian population is increasing, and plant products can meet the needs of more consumer groups.
Third, the concept of environmental friendliness. Animal breeding accelerates the emission of greenhouse gases, leading to environmental changes such as climate warming and environmental pollution.
In the whole alternative protein market, plant protein has always been the "focus" of the market. The raw material side has also experienced iterative innovation in the market, from the earliest soybeans and wheat to peas and rice, and then to the popular chickpeas and industrial marijuana,
Emerging plant proteins have many advantages in product formulation, including neutral and clean taste and color. At the same time, they are also blessed with breeding technology at the upstream raw material end, so as to open up more consumption scenarios for their downstream applications.
Aquaxanthin, a relatively small number of plant proteins
Pongamia pinnata is an evergreen tree, it is the genus of plant called
Millettia in the Fabaceae family , which belongs to the same family as soybean and pea. It is native to Southeast Asia, India, Australia, China, etc. For a long time, the bitterness and low toxicity of the raw material have not been solved and have not been fully developed and utilized.
Industrial hemp protein, a "new" raw material in the plant protein Market.
Industrial hemp protein refers to the industrial by-product of industrial hemp seeds, which contains a good balance of oil, protein and carbohydrates. Industrial hemp seeds usually contain more than 30% oil and about 25% protein, and contain a considerable amount of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. According to the market data of Zion market research, the industrial hemp protein market reached US $5.51 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach US $12.3 billion in 2026.
