Plant proteins do not function the same as meat and dairy proteins. They possess different functional properties in terms of water binding, gelation, foaming and emulsification. As such, it is often difficult to deliver the desired functional performance and flavor. Therefore, it is imperative to understand protein functionality and interactions and impact on processing parameters with hydrocolloids, starches and other ingredients.
