How are the Health Benefits of Soy Protein Hydrolysate Propelling Growth?

There are various health benefits of consuming soy protein hydrolysate. The product can help in increasing immunity and is beneficial in controlling diseases such as diabetes and blood pressure. The popularity of soy protein hydrolysate is growing among athletes and sports personnel as it can be easily digested and provides instant energy. 

At the same time, increasing use in preparing health drinks, protein shakes, and energy bars are likely to propel the growth of the global soy protein hydrolysate market over the next couple of years. The market is also anticipated to benefit from the fact that soy protein hydrolysate is being readily utilized in preparing bakery & confectionery items that are commercially sold. 

Since soy protein hydrolysate is manufactured using soya bean protein, they contain partial or, in most cases, zero lactose, cholesterol, and fat content. Soy protein hydrolysate is becoming popular among people who are lactose intolerant.

Why are Soybean Hydrolysate Fertilizers Acquiring Popularity?

Agriculturists around the world are increasingly encouraging usage of plant-derived organic fertilizers. This is largely in response to concerns over soil degradation while using single use synthetic fertilizers. Besides chances of contamination of surrounding underground water and increase in toxic salts, they eliminate useful microorganisms for plant nutrition.

While deploying organic fertilizers, soil microorganisms themselves degrade them until they become water soluble compounds that plants take advantage from. Another valuable feature is that they stimulate bacterial and fungal activity which benefits the soil in general. Moreover, organic fertilizers help proliferate growth of microorganisms.

Based on these properties, deployment of soybean protein hydrolysate fertilizers is augmenting on a large-scale. Several small-scale and medium-scale manufacturers are active in this domain. For instance, Qingdao Future Group manufactures the AmiStar® 800 soybean hydrolysate fertilizer, obtained from soybean cake and completely water soluble. Furthermore, it provides organic nitrogen in free amino acid form which can be directly used in the crop. It is highly adherent to leaves, attributed to its high viscocity.

Proliferating Vegan Population Widening Demand for Soy Protein Hydrolysate in the U.S?

The U.S soy protein hydrolysate industry is gaining momentum and is predicted to remain the most lucrative across North America, attributed to a mushrooming vegetarian and vegan population in recent years. According to VeganNews, the number of Americans following plant-based diets is around 10 million, or nearly 3% of the population. This is almost a 300% increase over the last 15 years. 

According to Fact.MR, the market for soy protein hydrolysate in the U.S is expected to capture 33% of global revenue. Furthermore, the most commonly used cooking oil in the U.S is soybean oil, which is typically labelled as vegetable oil. The Soy Nutrition Institute also says that about 7% of the calories consumed by Americans come from soybean oil. Soy protein is primarily utilized by the food industry for functional purposes, such as moisture retention, instead of nutritional reasons.

Taking into account the aforementioned trends, it is unsurprising to find prominent manufacturers vying for a significant presence. For instance, Archer Dainels Midland Company (ADM) offers the Pro-Fam® 974 Isolated Soy Protein, a soluble, dispersible product developed for use in food systems requiring highly functional proteins, and is used in processed meats, emulsified meats, and sausage-type meats. Likewise, CHS Inc. offers a broad range of soy protein isolates for ready-to-drink and dry blended beverages.

What has Stimulated Increased Soy Protein Consumption across China?

According to China Dialogue, over the last 25 years, soy imports have increased 25% annually on average, reaching almost 100 million tons in 2020. A key expansion driver for the East Asian giant is the flourishing livestock industry. Between 2008 and 2020, the amount of soybean meal used in China rose from 31.67 million to 76.83 million tons.

The Chinese government is also making efforts to balance out consumption of plant and animal proteins, which is also widening growth prospects for soy protein hydrolysates across the country. Soy protein contains eight out of nine essential amino acids required by the human body. Also, extensive reliance on soy protein as animal fodder has led to wastage of resources. For obtaining 1 kg of animal protein, 2-4 kg of soy protein is used.

Hence, using soy protein for human consumption could reduce this wastage by 2-4 tons. Also, efforts are also being made to curb food wastage from commercial sectors, mostly from restaurants. About 34-36 million tons of food is wasted annually by Chinese cities, as per a report published by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee. Hence, cutting this waste in half would enable saving of up to 60 million tons of food every year, while also free up land for soy cultivation. Based on aforementioned trends, the market for China is slated to account for 45% of global soy protein hydrolysate demand.
