LONDON, Feb. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the plant-based protein market, the diet pattern is considerably changing in western countries. People are showing more interest in plant-based eating patterns, i.e., opting for a vegetarian or vegan diet rather than conventional meat. Weight and metabolic improvements are the key components driving the adoption of the vegan or vegetarian diet among western countries. The emergence of COVID has also accelerated the change in food habits as people are more conscious about their health, avoiding unhealthy foods and opting for protein-rich plant-based foods. The wide range of varieties offered by plant-based food providers, including meat, cheese, milk, etc., is supporting people to shift their eating habits from becoming non-vegetarians to vegans or vegetarians. The studies by ‘Healthline’ highlight that a diet high in plant protein, such as a vegan or vegetarian diet, leads to lower blood pressure levels, lower cholesterol levels, and lower body weight. People, specifically in western countries, are adopting a healthier lifestyle by turning vegetarian or vegan.

Plant-based milk is increasingly gaining popularity in the plant-based protein market trends. There is an increase in demand for plant-based milk as it contains more protein as compared to regular milk. People have become more health-conscious and are looking to consume less dairy and replace it with healthier alternatives. This increasing demand for the product is driving innovation across the plant-based protein market to offer unique products with enhanced quality. For instance, in January 2021, Danone SA subsidiary Danone North America introduced a new multi-serve beverage, namely, ‘silk ultra’ containing plant-based protein. The target audience for the product is mostly athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The product is comprised of a total of 20g of plant-based protein per serving. Silk Ultra can be used with coffee as well as other milk applications, leading to its increasing utilization. Coconut milk or almond milk blended with pea protein is also another example of a plant-based protein with increasing demand across the market.
