2021 Protein Trends & Technologies Webinar Magazine

In the spring of 2021, Global Food Forums developed its first Premium Protein Webinar titled “Overcoming Technical Issues: Formulating with Protein Ingredients.” This publication, the 2021 Protein Trends & Technologies Webinar Magazine, is primarily based on presentations from that webinar.

The event started with a short introduction on industry trends and insights. Speakers then addressed three key technical challenges when working with protein ingredients, the optimization of a product’s texture, flavor and nutrition (i.e., protein quality). This publication ends with a slight update on previous allergen management presentations. To access the interactive magazine, click the download button at the bottom of this page.
