The market for pea protein isolates holds a strong position in the global markets as the demand for pea protein in plant-based meat and snacks has increased. Roquette (France) is the largest pea protein isolate producer and hosts a large portfolio of products that cater to customer requirements. The market for isolates is projected to observe fats growth in the market due to the high protein content offered by isolates as well as their use in a wide array of applications, including plant-based meat and performance nutrition. 


Dry textured pea protein is more often used in applications such as meat analogs, meat extenders, and meat substitutes. As dry pea protein gives a meat-like texture to plant-based meat products, manufacturers insist on using the dry form in such applications. Companies such as Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat have successfully developed and introduced products that include dry textured pea protein as the manufacturing process.


The use of pea protein has witnessed substantial growth in the meat substitutes industry, which is among the largest users of pea protein. The growing demand for meat alternatives has helped drive the change for pea protein, which is currently being used in the manufacturing of plant-based burger patties and sausages. The use in performance nutrition has also witnessed strong growth as factors such as lactose intolerance have witnessed athletes substituting whey protein with pea proteins.


Yellow split peas are adopted for use in multiple food formats, including plant-based burgers and pea milk, which utilize pea protein isolates derived from yellow split peas. They are also regarded as a high source of fiber and are taste-neutral in comparison.
