Currently, new food ingredients are being sought, mainly animal protein substitutes.

So far, mainly used derivatives of soy and nuts, but these are quite strongly allergenic ingredients. Peas and products based on it have recently gained popularity. We observe interesting dynamics in the area of ​​meat substitutes. Big muscular players protect themselves against this trend by investing in start-ups, which produce meat substitutes in plant form.
