Market Drivers – Textured Soy Protein Market
- Increasing demand for High-protein meat alternatives
Consumer demand for meat alternatives has grown over the past years as consumers have been on a journey of realization regarding how their lifestyle choices and purchases have an impact on our planet. An increased number of consumers are switching to plant-based diets for many reasons, including protecting animals, preserving the environment, general health concerns or changing taste preferences. Manufacturers are looking at plant-based proteins that offer functional, sustainable and nutritional attributes, inclusive of non-GMO and certified organic options. The combination of consumer concerns with an updated approach from the food industry to develop and deliver meat alternatives with excellent flavor, texture and mouthfeel properties has contributed to the large growth in the meat alternatives market.
- High nutritional value of soy
Soy is a nutrition powerhouse. In U.S consumers currently enjoy soy as a fresh vegetable dish in the form of edamame, and as a protein-providing legume that can be eaten in the same ways as other types of canned beans. There is huge demand of growing soybean substitutes that meets consumer needs and tastes around the world.
Challenges – Textured Soy Protein Market
- Unpleasant flavor of soy products
Consumer trends toward “cholesterol-free” food products have helped increase the demand for textured soy protein, impacting the demand for animal proteins. The main factor that has limited the use of soy products in western countries was the unpalatable taste of soy products, which is linked to the action of the lipoxygenase enzyme on the soybean oil. This flavor is caused due to the presence of compounds such as aldehydes, ketones, furans, and alcohols. Medium-chain aldehydes are one of the major reasons for the beany and grassy taste of soy products. The low cost of soy and high nutritional value are the main factors that motivate researchers to develop innovative and likable flavors in soy products. Efforts are being made to identify ways to neutralize the unpleasant flavor during the extraction process or by the addition of sugar compounds during the processing phase.
