Pea protein is generally used as a dairy alternative and a dietary supplement. It boasts a neutral taste and possesses a typical amino acid profile, making it a feasible choice for the food industry.

Europe Pea Protein Market Dynamics

The vegan diet is given preference among a large section of the developed economies such as the European Union. Various reasons like emotional attachments to animals, preventing exploitation of animals, rising health consciousness, rising incidents of lifestyle diseases like obesity, growing environmental awareness are a few factors influencing individuals to adopt a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Peas are an important grain legume, but more than 90% of pea production in Europe is used for animal feed. Currently, pea protein concentrates and isolates are trending in the pet food industry. Concentrates are becoming a popular choice over isolates because of same nutritional profile but lower cost. Concentrated pea proteins have also found use in injection-molded chews and treats. The concentrates have a bland flavor and aroma that can take on the characteristics of the remainder of the diet. Due to this reason acceptance of pea proteins by pet owners are not as high as the level of meat proteins.

Protein is on a winning streak with customers these days. With demand coming from everywhere, it is not just popular among sports enthusiasts but among people of all strata. While animal and soy proteins continue to dominate, pea protein is now breaking into the mainstream as a serious plant-based contender. Across the globe there is a regulatory void on the use of pea proteins in pet food and acceptance by regulatory agencies is not as straightforward. However, in Europe and other regions of the world, there are no indications that pea proteins are unacceptable.
