Overcoming Formulation Issues: Protein Ingredients

Global Food Forums’ 2021 Premium Protein Webinar is designed for application scientists and R&D product formulators working on protein-based food, beverage and supplement products. The food technology-based webinar, “Overcoming Formulation Issues When Formulating with Proteins,” delivers insights and answers to three of the most common product development challenges facing R&D.   Click here to register and/or access the webinar on demand. Alternatively, click on the presentation titles below, which access each session’s downloadable PowerPoint presentation and the video.

The topics covered are as follows:
• A brief introduction on a few industry insights and trends
• How to work with protein and protein ingredient blends for optimum product texture
• Understanding protein ingredient blending to improve the protein quality of plant-based products
• Gaining insights into working with flavorings for protein foods and beverages

Due to the gracious sponsor support (see list below) for this webinar event, registration is now complimentary!

With environmental and personal health in mind, consumers often are encouraged to eat more plant-based proteins. However, the acceptability of traditional baked goods, dairy desserts or a simple omelet all rely on proteins’ functional properties. As the food industry looks to utilize new sources of proteins, an understanding of protein ingredient properties and how they function within food matrices is very crucial. This presentation touches on the key functional properties in relation to food applications and how protein blending can offer opportunities for new emerging sources. Considerations and advice for formulating with conventional to emerging proteins is provided.

Optimizing consumer interest in protein-enhanced products requires success in obtaining a protein content claim. In the U.S., this is regulated through a product’s Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS). Plant-based proteins typically have lower PDCAAS scores than animal proteins due to reduced digestibility and amino acid compositions that are unable to satisfy human nutritional requirements. This presentation looks at how these limitations can be overcome through blending of complimentary plant proteins that can increase protein digestibility.

Flavor is crucial for a food’s or beverage’s acceptance. Obtaining a desired flavor profile can be challenging even in traditional products. When new protein ingredients are included, formulation difficulties can increase considerably. This session offers strategies to consider in the use of flavoring components. Tips and insights on important flavor-protein interactions are discussed. A brief overview on several research projects provides hints for what may be solutions of the future.
