Developing functional ingredients: a case study of pea protein
Book chapter, 2011
Legumes, such as peas, are suitable for human consumption, and especially for the development of novel protein foods, which could be used as meat replacement. This chapter discusses nutritional value and anti-nutritional factors of pea protein and processing issues to improve pea protein. The chapter then describes adding pea protein to food products and a case study of evaluating the nutritional, functional and sensory properties of improved pea protein products.
