Plant Protein Innovation Center

The Plant Protein Innovation Center (PPIC) is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to studying plant and alternative proteins.

We are the first center of its kind in the nation for plant and other alternative proteins. The PPIC brings together interdisciplinary researchers and industry partners to produce and study nutritious and functional plant protein ingredients and products, working across the value chain, all the way from breeding and genetics to processing, formulation, and marketing. Additionally, PPIC also strives to advance plant proteins by disseminating a wealth of knowledge and technologies developed from interdisciplinary research projects.

The PPIC addresses industry-identified plant-protein challenges and opportunities to develop a wealth of fundamental science leading to a low-emission food industry.


Don't forget, you can follow PPIC on LinkedIn to keep up-to-date on our latest happenings!
