As per the figure, the dry form of vegetable protein is expected to dominate the vegetable protein market in 2020. The dry form of protein processing is used in the production of protein concentrates. It incorporates dry milling technology, which is used to reduce the particle size of raw materials into fine particles. This method is used to process pulses and grains, which are related to their tissue structure and milling behavior. The process depends on the differential particle size and density within the ground flour. Once milled, an air grading process is used to separate the smaller protein rice fractions from larger starch-rich granules or fiber-rich granules.
