Pea Protein Market

Pea protein is extracted from Pisumsavitum having typical leguminous amino acid profile. Peas are rich in essential nutrients having high content of fiber, protein, amino acids, Vitamins and lutein. Pea protein has great amino acid profile including branch-chain amino acids that are well known for decreasing muscle breakdown after intense workout. A pea protein is a complete protein having all nine essential amino acids required by body for producing secondary amino acids.

There has been tremendous increase in global consumption of pea protein in last few years owing to number of benefits offered such as high BCAA contents, easily digestible, lactose free, mixes easily with water and low carbohydrate content. Pea proteins have high content of branched chain amino acids which have ability to keep body in continues muscle building state, decrease body fat, and enhances overall health of the individual.

Consuming whey or soy protein for extended period may lead to development of intolerance or allergies causing nausea and vomiting whereas, pea proteins doesn’t have any allergic content therefore rendering it as safe. Besides lowering weight, pea proteins are effective for lowering blood pressure and decrease risk of developing coronary heart diseases (CHD). Thus, pea proteins have emerged as substitute or alternative to other protein and non-protein foods and ingredients.

Rising importance of vegetarian and flexitarian among people and increasing consumption owing to nutritional value of pea protein is expected to propel growth of the market. Furthermore, rising complications with consumption of gluten and lactose rich foods and presence of advanced manufacturing facilities especially in U.S. is expected to drive the growth of the industry. Moreover, increasing awareness about importance of protein rich diet will increase demand for pea protein in coming years. However, strict regulations imposed by food regulatory bodies on inspection of food products and processing will slow down growth of the market.

Major players operating in this industry include Roquette Freres, Cosucra Groupe Warcoing, Nutri-Pea Limited, Burcon Nutrascience Corporation, Sotexpro, Farbest Brands, Axiom Foods, Inc., Shandong Jianyuan Foods Co., Ltd., Yantai Shuangta Food Co., Ltd., and The Scoular Company. These companies adopted new product launch and mergers and expansions to geographically expand their business operations and to increase their product portfolio for capturing larger market share. For instance in October 2015, Axiom Foods, the largest producer of plant protein in the U.S. had expanded to India to produce hexane- and ethanol free natural rice bran oil and stabilized rice bran ingredients for human food and animal feed sectors at affordable cost.
