What is it about?
Increasing awareness of inefficient meat production and its future impact on global food security has led the food industry to look for a sustainable approach. Meat products have superior sensorial perception, because of their molecular composition and fibrous structure. Current understanding in the science of food structuring has enabled the utilization of alternative or nonmeat protein ingredients to create novel structured matrices that could resemble the textural functionality of real meat

Why is it important?
Manufacturing concept‐based meat analogs with controlled structural attributes is a significant challenge for the food industry. A new review in Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety summarizes the roles of raw materials and processing parameters in modulating the behavior of the protein phase during the restructuring process.
