Wheat Protein to Seek Huge Adoption in Cosmetics Industry as an Emulsifier
Surging health concerns among consumers will spur adoption of wheat protein owing to their provision of high nutritional value in food products. Increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity have further fuelled adoption of wheat protein, as it is low in calorie content, thereby enabling regulation of blood-glucose level and weight reduction. Presence of gluten in wheat protein, which acts as an emulsifier, has led its adoption in the cosmetics industry. Tremendous adoption of wheat protein is being observed among sportsmen & gym-obsessed individuals, in order to enhance strength and gain muscles. In addition, growing use of wheat protein in animal feed as additives will further stoke its demand across the globe in the upcoming years. Increasing consumer inclination towards meat-free diets will remain a major driving factor for adoption of different plant-derived proteins such as wheat protein. The wheat protein seeks extensive applications across various industrial sectors owing to its numerous functions including tenderizing, structure enhancement, dough conditioning, aeration, adhesion, foaming, whipping, and film formation.
However, the restriction in the supply of wheat has restrained its protein extraction process since the recent past. Moreover, as wheat protein consists gluten, which is a major cause for various diseases, demand for wheat protein will be hindered among gluten-intolerant as well as common public who now prefer gluten-free diet. High costs of wheat comprising high protein content has further been anticipated to confine the market growth in the near future.
