Today, the main application of isolates is in the categories
of sports and muscle-building foods and beverages, protein bars and plant-based meat and dairy substitutes.
Choosing the right ingredient type

on consumer needs and their willingness to pay. Overall,
the three ingredient types can be considered as functional
ingredients and their application has much potential in
the global food industry. For example, there is great poWHQWLDOWRLQQRYDWHZLWKSXOVHVÀRXUVLQPL[HVZLWKRWKHU

with the right technology set-up can potentially deliver
promising plant-based products with good palatability
and taste ratings.
As the demand for healthy and sustainable foods is increasing, the pace of R&D in this area needs to accelerate.
This is why Bühler has been investing heavily in its Food
