Plant-based protein is hot, with everything from hemp, chickpeas, mung beans, lupini beans and watermelon seeds featuring in new snacks. But we’re also seeing strong growth and innovation in meat snacks, fueled in part by the Paleo trend, while whey protein remains a favorite with many in the sports nutrition field.


In this online Editorial Webinar, we bring together a clutch of snacking entrepreneurs utilizing a range of protein sources to talk about how the protein snacking trend is evolving, technical challenges to overcome, and how they are weaving their protein sources into their brand storytelling.
