Resumen : Abstract: An increasing use of vegetable protein is required to support the production of protein-rich foods which can replace animal proteins in the human diet. Amaranth, chia and quinoa seeds contain proteins which have biological and functional properties that provide nutritional benefits due to their reasonably well-balanced aminoacid content. This review analyses these vegetable proteins and focuses on recent research on protein classification and isolation as well as structural characterization by means of fluorescence spectroscopy, surface hydrophobicity and differential scanning calorimetry. Isolation procedures have a profound influence on the structural properties of the proteins and, therefore, on their in vitro digestibility. The present article provides a comprehensive overview of the properties and characterization of these proteins.
