2014 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar Home Page
The 2nd annual 2014 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar was held April 8-9, 2014 at the DoubleTree–Hilton Hotel, Arlington Heights, Illinois, USA. It was a resounding success with 15 expert speakers, record breaking attendance and completely sold out sponsorships and a tabletop exhibit area.
The event was expanded this year to include an unexpectedly popular pre-conference “Strategic Insights to Business Growth” in addition to the standing-room only Technical Program April 9th “Formulating with Proteins.”
The 2014 Protein Seminar 245+ attendees were nearly double last year’s registration and reached maximum capacity (again) some three weeks before the event was held.
A sincere thank you goes to the 18 sponsors, 24 exhibitors, 15 speakers and enthusiastic attendees who created an interactive networking event that focused on must-have information for product developers involved in protein-enhanced foods and beverages. Topics included were as follows:
Global consumer attitudes toward proteins and protein consumption and the benefits that they could provide.
Marketplace dynamics including protein costs and sources, supply and demand.
Insightful information to navigate through a tumultuous business environment.
A focus on proteins’ nutritional benefits, particularly their use in muscle maintenance and building.
Regulatory issues and insights on protein nutrient content and health claims globally.
Formulation functionality including the structuring properties that impact texture as well as taste properties with a focus on flavoring challenges and the formulation goal of formulating to enhance both protein and fiber levels in a range of applications.
Emerging technologies on new forms and sources of proteins including advances in the production of protein ingredients.
