From 'animal-free' dairy proteins, to RuBisCO protein from a fast-growing aquatic plant that behaves like egg white, to 'Superbrewed' bacterial protein, the so-called 'alternative protein' market is rapidly heating up. But how scalable and sustainable are some of these new offerings, and are consumers on board?

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 current protein landscape, from soy and pea to faba beans, plus the market potential for novel protein sources.

  • 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

  • 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 
  • Dr​ Bryan 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
  • 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
