Plant-based proteins such as soy and pea continue to dominate the so-called ‘alternative protein’ category, but they’re not the only game in town. New options are now emerging from ‘animal-free’ collagen and whey to a novel set of proteins produced naturally by lemna, bacteria, fungi, and the ‘ancient’ microorganism euglena. But which ones have the most potential and why?

In this FREE 60-minute webinar,​ moderated by FoodNavigator-USA editor Elaine Watson, we've brought together three exciting startups, an investor in alternative proteins, and a product innovation specialist, to explore the market potential for novel protein sources and discuss how to communicate their benefits to consumers.

  • Event:​ Protein 2.0 from plant-based to fungi, lemna, bacteria, and more
  • Date​: Wednesday September 15, 2021
  • Time​: 9.30am PT/12.30pm ET
  • Duration of webinar​: 60 minutes

AGENDA​: In our debate​, moderated by FoodNavigator-USA editor Elaine Watson, we’ll discuss:

  • Protein potential:​ Assessing the market opportunity for plant-based and ‘alternative’ proteins
  • The investor perspective​: How are investors viewing the protein landscape?
  • Yield and sustainability​: What’s the greenest, most efficient way to make high-quality food protein?
  • Comparing proteins​: Taste, performance, nutrition
  • Consumers and next-generation proteins:​ Labeling, marketing

The first 50 minutes will be devoted to the panel discussion, and we’ll leave the remaining 10 minutes for audience questions to our expert panel:

  • DrBryan Tracy​, co-founder of Superbrewed Food​, which is growing a whole food ingredient from a bacteria that’s very high in protein that works particularly well in dairy-free cheeses and other products
  • Adam Noble​, co-founder and CEO of Noblegen​, which is growing an ancient micro-organism called euglena gracilis that naturally produces a range of ingredients from proteins, to beta-glucans with immune health benefits 
  • Tony Martens​, co-founder at Plantible Foods, ​which is extracting RuBisCO protein from lemna, a fast-growing aquatic plant  
  • Nick Cooney​, founder and managing partner at Lever VC​, a venture capital fund making early stage investments in alternative protein companies
  • Barb Stuckey, ​president and chief innovation officer at Mattson​, a product innovation company that has worked with scores of players in the food and beverage industry from startups to multinationals
