  • Publication number: 20200245640
    Abstract: Provided is a method for producing a plant protein product which includes treating the plant protein with at least one an exogenous enzyme comprising an oxidoreductase and/or a hydrolase. The method results in a treated protein product that has reduced undesirable aromas and/or reduced undesirable tastes, compared to an untreated plant protein product. In a further embodiment, the method further includes mixing the treated protein product with another material to form a food composition. Also provided are compositions made by the methods of the invention.
