In fact, according to The Washington Post, one in four Americans are still reporting they’re eating more protein from plant sources than in the spring of 2020 thanks to health benefits. Three, major food companies, like Nestle say plant-based foods presents a large commercial opportunity. “We think less meat and dairy is good for the planet, but it’s also good for diet and health, and it is also a big commercial opportunity,” said Nestle CEO Mark Scheider, as quoted by Plant Based News.

THP™ is a key ingredient in Nepra’s commercial and direct-to-consumer meat alternatives and will be used extensively in future product development. Most textured vegetable proteins (TVPs) are derived from peas, soybeans, wheat, and other plant sources. Many of these can trigger food allergies, or have an “off” flavor and texture. Hemp, the base for THP™, is one of the cleanest, healthiest seeds on the market, making it a superior plant protein. The introduction of THP™ will revolutionize the plant-based sector and set a new precedent for future plant proteins.
