Adoption of plant based protein in milllenial consumers have increased.

The plant-based protein phenomenon is surging, forcing grocery manufacturers and retailers to respond quickly to meet shopper’s interest. This is due to consumers are prioritizing health, wellness, and social issues in increasing numbers, and this translates to more conscious shopping choices—such as buying products that align with specific diets, lifestyles, and values, as well as avoiding unwanted ingredients due to allergies or food sensitivities. In the U.S., there are 200 million shoppers who adhere to a diet or health-related program and 180 million have food allergies or intolerances that affect the way they shop. A healthy lifestyle, supported by the integration of plant-based alternatives, has become a popular notion among millennial consumers who are increasingly open to the idea of plant-based products. According to the International Food Information Council, the US witnessed a growth rate of 54% in terms of food & beverage product launches, with plant-based claims between 2013 and 2017.

Extrudable fat technology is making plant-based foods tasty and look better

Extrudable fat technology mimics animal fat in plant-based meats, which allows for more authentic fat textures, such as marbling. The technology allows to run fat through an extruder and then combine it with protein to create a better ingredient where the fat and the protein are physically linked together. Otherwise, fat normally would turn into a liquid at those pressures and temperatures. By balancing the relationship between fat and protein in a way that mimics what consumers would normally get in a marbleized piece of meat, such as beef, the result is better flavor release, texture, taste, and moisture retention.

Increasing awareness related to health benefits associated with fermented food products to boost the demand of meat substitute such as Temph

Tempeh is an excellent substitute for ground beef. It has a cake-like consistency and is made from cooked and slightly fermented soybeans. The fermentation helps in breaking down the phytic acid in soybeans, which makes the starch in tempeh easier to digest. There are numerous health benefits offered by tempeh. For example, it helps in increasing the antibodies and decreasing the sugar levels, which reduces the risk of diabetes. It also helps in lowering cholesterol levels, which helps in reducing the risk of heart diseases.
