Apart from the mentioned factors, notable growth of the vegan population across the world is another major factor due to which, the demand for vegan protein alternatives, including alfalfa protein concentrate is on the rise. In response to the surge in demand for healthy and natural food products, companies operating in the current market landscape are increasingly focusing on research & development activities to enhance the quality of products and minimize the quantity of sodium.

Plant-based Green Proteins Emerge as Ideal Protein Alternative for Underutilized Proteins

The demand for alfalfa protein concentrate from the animal feed industry is on the rise due to which, the alfalfa protein concentrate market is projected to grow at a steady pace during the forecast period. Due to the logistics and supply-side challenges put forward by long-distance transportation of soybean by the animal feed industry in Europe, locally sourced plant proteins are largely underutilized. In recent times, protein extracted from green biomass such as clover, alfalfa, grass, etc., has emerged as an ideal protein source and is increasingly being used over soybean. In addition, the production of green proteins has a lower impact on the environment due to which, the adoption of the same is on the rise, particularly within the animal feed sector in Europe. Animal feed companies are increasingly using alfalfa protein concentrates, owing to the desired amino acid composition and high digestibility and thereby emerging as an ideal protein source for monogastric animals, including chicken.
