Geographic and time trends of EU-28 countries suggest that many countries traditionally reliant upon diets rich in plant proteins substantially reduced their per capita consumption and production from the 1960s.
PROTEIN2FOOD is expected to provide a substantial contribution to the ongoing scientific and political discussions in the field of sustainable agriculture.
PROTEIN2FOOD has been working closely with the Aarstiderne farm in Denmark to develop prototypes of protein-rich crops.
Cow´s milk allergy and malabsorption of lactose are common conditions that can remain with some people for their whole lives. Therefore, beverages based on plants could be an interesting alternative.
PROTEIN2FOOD partner LBI published a brochure entitled “Lupin, a healthy alternative for farmers and consumers” (Dutch only).
Udo Prins (Louis Bolk Institute) explains the opportunities of Lupin as a crop in Europe.
