Production of Pea Protein Isolate Powder

Ken Morison and PhD student Mahnaz Shahverdi will talk about the development of a pea protein isolate in the context of plant-based foods for New Zealand. With the growing global interest in plant-based proteins it is not clear yet clear what protein sources NZ might produce for local consumption and/or export. One option is to apply the whey processing expertise of the NZ dairy industry to produce a highly-functional protein powder from peas or other legumes. Research shows that this can be done effectively and a very soluble, low sodium, low fat product can be obtained. The possible structure of a New Zealand industry based on this will also be discussed.
