World Soy Protein Production Grew to 2.77M Metric Tons in 2009, Says New Soyatech Report (10.28.2010)

Soyatech LLC -- SOUTHWEST HARBOR, ME -- October 28, 2010 -- Soy protein for food use continues to be a dynamic growth market worldwide with production reaching 2.77 million metric tons in 2009 (up by more than 50% over the course of the decade), according to Soy Proteins: Products, Industry & Market 2010, a report released today by Soyatech, LLC, the leading intelligence resource for the food and agribusiness industries.

Soyatech’s new report, Soy Proteins: Products, Industry & Market 2010, summarizes developments in the soy protein industry over the last 15 years (including the rapid rise of the Chinese processing industry) and forecasts likely growth of the sector in value and volume through 2015. The report discusses the major food applications for soy protein products, factors affecting world soybean supply, and global consumption patterns that will impact further market expansion.

“Since we began looking at the soy protein market in detail in 2006,” said Sarah Day LeVesque, Soyatech Content Manager and lead author of the report, “We have seen the dramatic growth from the first half of the decade cool, though soy protein isolates, concentrates and flours for food use remain a valuable, growing market segment for the major companies that produce them.”

Soy proteins are widely used in food for their functional and health properties, and the past 50 years of food industry research and development has yielded a broad array of products that can be used in creating vegetarian foods; extending processed meat products; fortifying beverages, snack foods and cereals; as well as many other uses.
