Sunflower protein meal could be an alternative and sustainable plant-based protein source, with the potential to add value and replace egg (E) in cakes due to its surface-active properties, however, contains chlorogenic acid and its oxidation leads to greening. Additionally, the electrostatic complexes prepared from the mixture of proteins and polysaccharides can be an important tool to improve the technological properties compared to them are used individually. The aim of this study was the replacement of E in cakes by sunflower protein meal dispersion (SPMD) or electrostatic complexes of sunflower protein meal-pectin (ECSPM-P), evaluating their effects on the cake batter and fresh and aged baked product. Results of the Rapid Visco Analyser (RVA) analysis indicated higher initial viscosity of the cake batters with SPMD and ECSPM-P and lower peak viscosity and less swelling of the starch granules of the cake batter with ECSPM-P. The formulation with SPMD showed the greatest...
