Key Takeaways on Pea as a Next-Generation Raw Material

Roquette's selection of peas as a next-generation raw material was spotlighted for its sustainability and nutritional benefits.

"With the global population projected to reach 9 billion by 2050, ensuring nutritional safety and sustainability is paramount," emphasized Roquette's representative.

Peas offer an optimal composition—approximately 50% starch, 25% protein, and 14% fiber—making them efficient raw material with minimal waste. Peas are not a major allergen and require minimal herbicides, pesticides, and nitrogen fertilizers, thus boasting a low environmental footprint.
