Abstract

European protein demand is currently met through imported protein, mainly in the form of soyabeans and soya products. There is a need to develop a more sustainable strategy for both production and consumption of protein in Europe. This is likely to include dietary change, the use of alternative sources of protein, more efficient use of protein in the food chain and increased production of grain legumes. Here we explore how legumes can play a key part in this strategy.
