France Pea Protein Market Dynamics

Rising Health Consciousness Drives Demand for Pea Protein Market in France

The rising Prevalence of health-related issues has surged the demand for the pea protein market in France. Compared to animal proteins, plant proteins exhibit environmental friendliness, sustainability, ethical selectivity, and a more balanced amino acid composition. Pea protein is hypoallergenic and has a balanced amino acid ratio, making it the preferred vegetable protein to replace animal protein. Pea protein promotes an increase in muscle thickness, especially for those building muscle strength. In addition, pea protein exhibits specific functional benefits including solubility, emulsifying and foaming ability, stability of emulsions and foams, and gelling and film-forming ability. Thanks to both a low initial level in the pea crop and a unique extraction process has boosted the market growth in France. Plant-based protein powder has impacted in boosting immunity as a result it has propelled the market.

Challenges Hindering Adoption of Pea Protein in the Food Industry

The application of pea protein in food and beverage is still a difficult task for the food industry due to its inherent taste and processing technical characteristics. Pea Protein is high in sodium and not suitable for every body type. Pea Protein is more expensive than regular or other proteins has resulted in restrained market growth. Lack of Vitamin B12 in Pea Protein which is primarily obtained from meat and dairy products has created a barrier to the Pea Protein Market. The Shift in the preference for animal-based protein as compared to plant-based protein, vegetarians are more likely to be deficient in vitamin B12.


France Pea Protein Market Segment Analysis

Based on Application, Sports Nutrition holds the majority share of 28% with a growing CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period. Pea Protein contains all essential amino acid that enhances the ability to perform in sports. Pea protein helps to develop and recover muscle mass as it is clinically proven, that intake of pea protein provides great nutrition to the body. Pea protein also offers high digestibility and is the richest source of arginine, at 8.7% per gram of protein. Supplementation with protein helps repair muscle damage, as it helps to promote protein synthesis. Pea protein has a high bioavailability, the higher the bioavailability, the higher the percentage of protein that is absorbed and utilized in the body.
