Whole Yellow Peas and Pea Protein Ingredients: A Close Supply and Value Chain Relationship

Whole Yellow Peas and Pea Protein Ingredients: A Close Supply and Value Chain Relationship

Although dry pea protein ingredients are not the major driver for whole yellow pea production, they command the highest value as a food product, when compared to direct consumption, flour, and starch.

The demand for processed pea protein is growing the fastest in North America (the United States), which dominates production and exports (Canada). Demand in the rest of the world (China, for example) is also witnessing rapid growth; these countries import a significant amount of whole yellow peas.

To meet the high pea protein demand, protein and food ingredient companies will look to utilize North America’s high whole yellow pea production by increasing processing within the United States and Canada.

As a major consumer of pea starch, China is well positioned, process-wise, to meet pea protein demand, while increasing whole yellow pea production. Food companies in Europe will look to partner with cost-competitive processing firms or establish overseas operations in the United States, Canada and China.

About this report

Increasing demand for plant protein is affecting global whole yellow pea production and trade flow. Although direct consumption, animal feed ingredients, and starch are the major end applications of whole yellow pea, demand for dry pea protein concentrate is witnessing rapid growth in China, North America, and Western Europe. Canada and the United States are the top 2 producers of whole yellow pea and are also major global exporters. With the recent increase in demand for plant protein in the United States, Western Europe, and China, the global production and trade scenario is poised to evolve. This insight offers an in-depth analysis of the whole yellow pea supply and value chain.
