Europe's population is getting older, bringing a range of nutrition-related health concerns to the fore, including how to maintain muscle mass as we age - an issue thought to be closely related to protein consumption.
While most Europeans consume more than enough protein, much of it is in the form of animal protein - and is often also high in saturated fat.Solae's director of global marketing Jean Heggie told FoodNavigator that consuming small amounts of plant-based protein throughout the day - rather than overloading on animal protein at an evening meal - could help maintain muscle mass in the elderly.
