Proteins are large biomolecules, or macromolecules, comprising one or multiple chains of building blocks called amino acids. Protein usually performs a wide range of functions, which include catalyzing metabolic processes, replicating DNA, reacting to stimuli, and transporting the molecules. Proteins increase muscle mass & strength, reduce appetite & hunger levels, improve bone health, boost metabolism, facilitate fat burning, lower blood pressure, maintain weight, and help the body repair itself after an injury. Proteins also carry oxygen throughout the body through the blood and fuel energy. Its consumption also helps to make new antibodies, which fight infections and other illnesses. Most importantly, the consumption of adequate proteins creates or repairs new cells, curing cancer.
The demand for proteins is characterized by various market trends such as growing health-consciousness, rising number of fitness centers, growing consumer spending on premium products, and the attractive & long-shelf-life packaging of the products. The primary parameters affecting industry growth comprise sustainability & innovation in the industry, regulation or guidelines imposed, the demand-supply gap, and the expansion of the food processing technology.
