Research into novel sources of protein is producing a wide array of functional, cost-effective ingredients. The commercialization of primarily plant-based protein ingredients such as pea to potato and algal to rice offers formulation possibilities that may not have been available in the past. This presentation takes an objective overview of new protein categories entering the marketplace. Insights into their properties and relevant processing will be presented.
