Webinar description

There is a growing interest in novel plant-based proteins to replace ingredients such as milk and soy that have traditionally dominated the market. This interest is fueled by the desire for sustainable protein sources, lower-cost ingredients, valorization of by-products, overcoming functionality limitations of specific proteins, and utilizing all possible resources to expand the overall ingredients supply. The demonstration of equivalent or superior/new functionality of novel plant proteins compared to existing alternatives is of interest to both the food industry and consumers. Join Dr. Pam Ismail, Director of the Plant Protein Innovation Center, as she discusses her research to enhance the viability of plant proteins through various functionalization approaches.
