What is it about?

Plant-based proteins are increasingly popular. Pea and rice proteins are promising to substitute allergenic proteins. However, manufacturers generally provide limited functionality information on these proteins. Therefore, this study comprehensively compared the functional properties of wheat, soybean, rice, and pea proteins for their industrial applications and illustrated correlation among various functionalities.

Why is it important?

Rice and Pea proteins are promising substitutes because of their “allergen‐friendly” as well as their emergence in the food market. This study provided a comprehensive comparison of the functionality of commercially available wheat, soybean, rice, and pea proteins.


The information presented in this study would be helpful to food scientists, scholars, or engineers when they develop appropriate applications of various proteins in food products.
