Future of Plant Proteins: Utilization in Food and Beyond

Canada is well known as a global leader for its high quality commodity-based exports from cereals, oilseeds and pulses. However, as plant protein ingredients gain considerable interest by the food industry, a shift towards investing in secondary processing technologies to capitalize on their high value protein fractions is under way, as consumers demand for healthier, lower cost alternatives to animal-derived or soy-based ingredients.

In order to meet the market demand, innovations in feedstocks, fractionation and pre-and post-processing is needed to address some of the challenges associated with their nutrition value, functionality and flavor.

This webinar will discuss some emerging opportunities within the plant protein ingredient industry.


  • Protein markets/trends
  • Plant protein sources
  • Opportunities in feedstock innovations, fractionation, and pre- and post-processing
  • Tailoring protein functionality
  • Protein applications
  • Summary
