A panel of experts will join FoodNavigator to discuss the tests that plant-based proteins now face. Among them are the challenges manufacturers face to provide consumers with better products, with improved taste and texture, to see repeat buying from shoppers, and the need to keep innovating. What new plant-protein ingredients and additives are out there that may not be able to reach the market as quickly as we would like? Are the EU’s novel food rules preventing new products coming onto the market? Are rules around gene editing inhibiting the development of a sustainable alternative protein sector because new resilient or high-protein crops can’t be cultivated? The panel will also investigate issues of scaleabilty, labelling, processing techniques and clean label. Meanwhile, what kind of questions about plant-based protein’s health and sustainability credentials can manufacturers except to encounter? Join us to find out.
