Key Findings and Implications
•Although dry pea protein ingredients are not the major driver for whole yellow pea production, they command the highest value as a food product, when compared to direct consumption, flour, and starch.
•The demand for processed pea protein is growing the fastest in North America (the United States), which dominates production and exports (Canada). Demand in the rest of the world (China, for example) is also witnessing rapid growth; these countries import a significant amount of whole yellow peas.
•To meet the high pea protein demand, protein and food ingredient companies will look to utilize North America’s high whole yellow pea production by increasing processing within the United States and Canada.
•As a major consumer of pea starch, China is well positioned, process-wise, to meet pea protein demand, while increasing whole yellow pea production. Food companies in Europe will look to partner with cost-competitive processing firms or establish overseas operations in the United States, Canada and China.
Whole Yellow Pea and Pea Protein Ingredients Market—Supply Chain Scope
•Pea and pea protein ingredients, with a detailed focus on the following:
oWhole yellow pea production
oIntermediate and co-product pea products (cleaned/dried/milled)
oDry fractionated pea protein concentrates and other protein ingredient alternatives
•Dry whole yellow peas: The dry yellow cotyledon seed type has a smooth seed coat.
•The crop is grown during the cooler months of the year.
•Some strains include Eclipse, Mozart, DS Admiral, and Miami.
End Application Scope
•Food and beverage (with a sub-market segmentation, provided when relevant).
•Sports nutrition and dietary supplements (with a sub-market segmentation, provided when relevant)
•Cosmetics and personal care.
•Other applications, if relevant (including medical food and clinical nutrition, animal feed, and infant formula).
•Pea protein ( x %– % protein): It is one of the major ingredients of dry whole yellow peas.
•After harvest, the peas are cleaned, dried, and de-hulled (upstream processing). They are then milled into flour-containing food ingredients, such as protein, starch, fat, and fiber.
•Pea protein concentrate ( x %– % protein) is the final product post the downstream fractionation, purification, and drying processes.
