AMSTERDAM, August 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
- Fi Europe & Ni 2015 to provide multiple solutions in proteins
Protein has been one of the main ingredients of interest in the food industry for many years. Global demand has greatly increased due to its efficiency and high nutritional value, and the overall protein market is forecast to reach $40 billion in the coming years, according to a recent study by Gran View Research. Food ingredients (Fi) Europe & Natural ingredients (Ni) 2015, one of the top ten events worldwide for the food and beverage industry, will provide a key platform for both sourcing solutions and learning about the latest insights and developments in protein.
Taking place in Paris Nord Villepinte, France, from 1-3 December, Fi Europe 2015 will welcome over 26,000 visitors from all over the world and more than 1,300 exhibitors including Brenntag, Cargill, ADM and Naturex. A number of exhibitors will be showcasing their innovations and solutions in protein, such as Rousselot, Prinova and Essentia Protein Solutions and there will be several features on the show floor for visitors which will focus on the trending topic of proteins.
Pea, Animal and Dairy Proteins
Fi Europe 2015 exhibitor Roquette claim to be the world leader in pea ingredients and have developed an entire range of pea proteins with different functional and physical properties. Some of them are particularly suitable for sports nutrition, weight management products and clinical nutrition. The range is marketed under the name NUTRALYS®, a highly purified pea protein consisting of 85% dry matter, which is obtained from the yellow dried pea, a sustainable source with a low level of anti-nutritional factors.
Industry experts expect the market growth of pea protein to rise to 9% by 2019. "The benefits of pea protein are many," says Datamonitor Analyst, Renata De Marchi. "The ingredient is hypoallergenic and not genetically modified, giving brands a 'cleaner' label. It is also more sustainable than many other crops. In order for pea proteins to gain traction in the marketplace, companies need to increase production capacity and reduce costs, as pulses are in short supply."
Animal proteins accounted for over 70% of protein ingredients revenue share in 2013 and are expected to grow the fastest in the coming years, according to Grand View Research. Dairy proteins are also on the rise, as highlighted by Natalie Meijers, Communication Manager at FrieslandCampina DMV, also exhibiting at the show. "We see an increasing demand for dairy proteins due to their natural and healthy image combined with a great taste. Dairy proteins have a unique combination of high nutritional value combined with excellent functionality. We produce dairy proteins out of fresh milk which quality is controlled from grass to glass. This enables manufacturers of healthy and nutritious food to develop natural and good tasting high protein products." At Fi Europe 2015, FrieslandCampina DMV will launch a unique protein innovation with increased functionality, Excellion EM7 High Viscosity. This innovation will help analogue and processed cheese producers save costs and improve their product quality in a natural way.
