The gradual shift from meat or diary-based protein toward plant-based ingredients is a key factor driving the consumption of fava bean proteins.
To generate more popularity, manufactures are upgrading fava bean protein formulations by adapting innovative ways to extract and process the final product. Additionally, varied processes have been endeavoured to standardise fava bean protein’s bio-accessibility and digestibility. Consequently, enhanced fava bean protein quality will drive its penetration across regions.
Intensifying veganism across the world due to a rising awareness about vegan diets and high digestibility is also one of the supporting factors that will propel the adoption and consumption of fava bean proteins going forward.
