Case Studies on Using New Protein Technologies to Reinvent Foods and Beverages
The advent of COVID-19 in 2020 has accelerated the consumer search for food and beverages that are not only 'good-for-you' but also sustainable. Plant and dairy protein ingredient innovations have the ability to address consumer interests by delivering functionality along with permissible indulgence.
To help product developers meet these emerging market opportunities, Kerry has developed and released an eBook titled Reinventing foods and beverages with innovative protein technologies that contains real-life examples of the company partnering with customers to reformulate food and beverages using innovative plant and dairy technologies and ingredients.
Plant and dairy protein ingredients have the ability to fulfill many of these increased consumer demands by focusing on three key product development themes:
- Added functionality can be addressed by adding plant or dairy protein to daily food and beverages to improve health and nutrition benefits.
- Permissible indulgence can be supported using protein ingredients to support “free from” and “source of” claims.
- 'Fill the gap' involves improving the nutritional profile of plant-based products to match their animal-based equivalents.
The eBook contains interesting customer case studies in which plant and dairy protein solutions were applied to achieve product advances under each theme: specifically, these include vegan protein waters, foodservice plant protein latte coffees, vegan sugar confectionery, protein-enriched ice cream, plant-based milks, and a plant-based Bolognese sauce. These new protein technologies allow Kerry’s customers to compete more effectively in new emerging markets in which consumers are searching for products that are not only “good for you” but also sustainable.
