Plant Protein Primer
Consumer demand for plant-based products is growing rapidly, and a broad portfolio of plant proteins is now available for plant-based meat, egg, and dairy products. Our Plant Protein Primer helps manufacturers compare plant protein sources on key attributes like nutrition, functionality, price, and sourcing. The guide includes profiles of major and emerging plant protein sources, combination and processing strategies, and consumer perceptions.
