If by 'latest' you mean the increasing demand in the last 10-15 years for "high protein" products (such as powders, bars, gels, drinks, & tablets) to promote muscle (mass) growth/recovery, then yes.

However, a high protein diet is not a new discovery related to how the human body uses nutrients (such as protein & amino acids) for repair/maintenance.

Although (amateur/professional) "bodybuilders" have typically favoured high protein diets to benefit their training, the exercise/training session/gym activities in the increasing health-conscious public has probably led to food manufacturers increasing supply of products that address the needs of consumers "on-the-go" (that do not have time to stop for a meal, but prefer to take snacks) through targeted marketing/advertising.

Also, the changing attitudes towards the production/consumption of meat &/or animal-derived foods, may be adding to the demand of alternative sources of protein.

lol protein porridge . Full of sugars and poor quality oats and then microwaved. Ok for lazy fatties but as there aiming this at health people all these things negate there purpose. Just another joke gimmick with false advertising.
