Roquette's new kid on the milk replacement product block

Interest in milk alternatives is growing due to concerns about dairy allergies and a desire for alternative protein sources and additional nutritional benefits. We’ve seen nut milk, oat milk and even rice milk, but the leading dairy-free alternative to milk from ruminants is soy.

Didier Videau, development director from Roquette’s Nutrition Business Unit says this could change in time, as Roquette presents a pea-protein based milk alternative to clients at HIE 2010. Traditionally, pea protein has been criticised for its ‘off’ taste, but Videau explains that the VegBoost concept uses “breakthrough” ​technology to counter this, and is non-GM, non-allergenic and high in fibre.

Using pea protein for people with milk allergies

Posted by Hazel Gowland,

Allergy to pea protein is a growing problem, particularly in Scandinavia. Related legumes eg peanut, soy and lupin have already been identified as key allergens requiring specific labelling and allergen risk management / control throughout Europe. We are learning from the example of wheat isolates that processing methods can change the allergy status of apparently ordinary foods, and a full assessment needs to made of any food targeted at high risk food allergic individuals.
