The global zein protein market is likely to increase in the coming years, due to applications of zein protein in the food and beverage industry. Zein is a type of prolamine protein is a water soluble and edible form of protein that is used in numerous applications in the food and beverage industry. Recent advancement made in use of zein proteins as gluten-free alternatives has been a boon for the global zein protein market and the ease of zein-protein extraction is likely to induce growth of the overall market in the coming years.
Scientists Discover Zein-Based Gluten Free Alternative
In 2016, a group of scientists in Italy came up with a dough using the zein protein. The zein-based dough is derived from corn. The dough is said to be gluten-free and is suitable for people with health problems such as coeliac. Additionally, use of zein proteins can be used to overcome the problems associated with gluten intake such as diarrhoea and bloating. Zein has the property to restore the elasticity within the dough and is likely to restore the flavor of conventional dough.
The advantage of zein protein over other gluten free alternatives is the ability to restore elasticity and flavour, along with high fibre content. This discovery has encouraged zein-protein manufacturers from around the world. The use of zein proteins can have a massive impact on the global zein proteins market and is likely to favor growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
