New Protein Acceptability

IFST framework theme

Novel production systems and ingredients 


To facilitate the uptake of alternative protein sources 

Further information 

  • There are several new food technologies that are intended to reduce resource dependence and increase nutritional value of animal feeds and human foods – for example, insect-derived proteins, ‘lab meat’, plant-derived proteins, etc.
  • This topic is of interest to business – with many of the major multi-nationals exploring investing in product development.
  • Many of the potential solutions could pose technical, legal, and consumer-acceptability challenges for the food industry and IFST is well-placed to contribute to this evolving area
