The world's growing population is stretching the resources for protein
“Development of high-quality food protein through sustainable production and processing” (PROTEIN2FOOD).
EU Horizon2020 (2015-2020). The project has 19 partners. The overall aim of the project is to improve the quality of plant-protein from a nutritional, economic, environmental, and organoleptic point of view. The approach covers the whole food supply chain from ‘farm to fork’ of plant-protein from legumes (lupin, faba beans, pea, chickpea, lentil) and new high-quality crops (quinoa, amaranth, and buckwheat).
These crops have been selected due to their promising potential as important food crops in the EU context for their protein quality and amount.
