Plant based proteins are taking center stage in every category of foods. The industry needs agreed and well validated methods for assessing protein content and functionality for food applications but there is a surprising lack of standardization in this area.
AOCS is calling for researchers with experience in this field to serve on the protein analysis subcommittee of the AOCS Uniform Methods Committee.
Subcommittee members will consider proposed methods and determine if they are of sufficient precision and utility. International collaborative trials will be conducted for methods that receive initial acceptance by the Subcommittee and will inform their decisions as methods progress towards acceptance as official AOCS methods for use in commercial transactions and quality assessments worldwide.
