Few among them are walnuts that contain 4.5 grams of protein in a single nut, almonds with 6 grams of protein, cashews with 4.5 grams, chia seeds with 6 grams, flax seeds contain 6 grams, hemp seeds have 9.5 grams, and pumpkin seeds have protein up to 8.5 grams, whereas, sunflower protein contains 5.5 grams of protein in them, which directly shows that there are multiple better options available in the market that are vegan and does contain high protein in them.

Analyst Review

In the view of CXO, the global sunflower protein market has seen myriad of innovations, which fuel its market growth. Brands have introduced sustainable strategies and launched products as per consumer need. For instance, in India, the demand for food supplement with plant based protein is high and is rising day by day, which led to the surge in demand for sunflower protein in the country. This resulted in high demand for sunflower protein by-products from local suppliers like Amway and Vestige.

CXO further added that the demand for plant based protein has surged with the growth in awareness regarding wellbeing among the consumers, which is generally promoted by the growing online health sector or by the local key players either by advertisement or by counseling their customers in person regarding the benefits of their products over their health. As the knowledge regarding the nutritional deficiency is still very less among the consumers, spreading awareness is still necessary in the developing countries, which is highly affected. Moreover, diseases like chronic kwashiorkor, marasmus, impaired mental health, oedema, organ failure, wastage & shrinkage of muscle tissues, and weak immune system are some of the diseases that are common due to the deficiency of protein and can be cured by the sufficient availability of protein in the body of the patient. This is a major factor responsible for rise in the demand for plant based protein in the market as consumers demand vegan substitutes for consumption. Therefore, the awareness regarding plant based protein is on rise among the consumers globally directly or indirectly, which has propelled the demand for sunflower protein in the market either in terms of food supplements or food products.
