The rise of plant-based diets and consumer interest in products with higher protein and/or lower carbohydrate content, have encouraged the industry to produce and reformulate products that cater for these growing groups of consumers. Plant-based proteins are consequently in demand as the industry looks for alternatives to animal-based ingredients.
