Canola Proteins Market Outlook
Canola is the second-largest oilseed produced globally after soy. There are three major reasons for striking the growth of canola as international crop, it is temperature friendly as it can grow in a cold and temperate climate, a tolerance for a variety of soils and favorable production costs.
Canola produces high-quality protein oriented meals during the oil extraction process.Canola protein offers various functional properties such as solubility, gelation, water-binding capacity, foaming, and emulsification, compared to other oilseed proteins. Canola proteins also have the potential of gelling agent. The napin fraction of canola protein is better suited as a foaming agent as compared to a wide-range of pH than cruciferin.
The essential and sulfur-containing amino acids, methionine and cysteine, in canola protein exceeds the nutritional requirements for both children and adults. Canola protein is a cost-effective and sustainable source of protein with high bioavailability and digestibility. Due to nutritional and functional properties, the use of canola protein is rising in food and nutraceutical products. Canola protein is widely used in animal feed for livestock, fish, and poultry.
Growing Concerns Regarding Animal Welfare
Consumers are becoming more compassionate and sensitive towards animals because of the circumstances and environment in which they are raised and harvested. Animal welfare is one of the primary reasons for consumers opting for plant-based products, including plant-based protein ingredients.
As per to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization (PETA), to produce more than 18,000 pounds annually, cows undergo genetic manipulation and are treated with antibiotics and bovine growth hormones. To increase the efficiency and productivity of cows, the hormones are used which impacts their health adversely.
Increasing animal cruelty and maltreatment in the food industry has led to the growing concerns of consumers regarding animal welfare, thus increasing the demand for plant-based protein ingredients. This factor is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the canola protein market in the forecast period.
Growth of Premium Pet Food Market Boosting Demand for Canola Protein
The rise in pet ownership and humanization has led to an increase in demand for premium pet food. Consumer awareness about the products that their pets consume is at an all-time high.
Consumers are willing to provide their pets with the utmost care and the best quality of food products that they can offer despite facing economic challenges. Consumers want to give their pets’ highly nutritious pet food for proper growth and healthy life. This is observed more in developed countries.
Thus, many manufacturers are offering premium pet food and are customizing pet food with the latest advancements to meet the changing market demands. On the back of these factors, the demand for natural and plant-based protein ingredients to improve the palatability of pet food products is expected to increase.
When compared to most other plant or vegetable ingredients, canola is a particularly dense source of protein. Protein is crucial in dogs' and cats’ diet as it is used to repair, maintain, and grow a dog or cat’s muscles and cells. Canola protein keeps the dog skin healthy and helps to build a strong immune system. The use of canola protein is increasing rapidly by pet food manufacturers.
