What is it about?
This review aims to discuss the important parameters considered crucial for the application of protein in foods. The amino acid profile is the most important parameter for the evaluation of the quality of a protein, while others (viz., molecular weight distribution, structural morphology, and thermal stability) are crucial properties of the protein. functional properties of proteins are also described.
