Protein is a vital nutrient used for maintaining muscles and bones, as well as supporting the immune system, among other things. Plant-based diets offer a diversity of health benefits, including healthy weight, optimal health, and longevity. The amino acids within the protein are used to build and repair tissues necessary for infants and children's normal growth and development. Plant-based dietary patterns feature a widespread range of dietary regimens that are predominantly based on plant foods. Plant-based protein sources include soy, wheat, Pea, and other plant sources. Plant protein is low in saturated fat and cholesterol and is a good source of unsaturated fat, fibers, vitamins, and minerals.
At present times, people have started to pay more attention to their diet and health since the coronavirus outbreak. The Plant-Based Foods Association (PBFA) accounted for all plant-based sales during the third week of March, the beginning of most shutdowns in the U.S., was up 90% compared with the previous year, and still 27% higher a month later.
Growing consumption of plant-based food due to naturally occurring fibers, anti-inflammatory micronutrients, antioxidants, lower calorie counts, and increasing demand for high-protein content products are mainly driving the market growth. The rising consumer awareness about the health benefits of plant-based foods is further accelerating the market's growth. Growing demand for fat-free and low-fat protein sources along with an emerging shift towards food patterns to a more plant-based diet, is anticipated to show significant growth during the forecast period.
