Filtration Solutions To Produce Highly Functional Protein Ingredients

Food Supplements GettyImages-177288839

Environment and sustainability concerns are pushing the development of production of plant-based proteins to complement traditional animal source.

Within the plant-based protein world, the protein ingredients represent high added value products due to their functional properties.

In order to preserve natural functionalities of of plant-based proteins, production process must minimize potential denaturation effects (thermal, chemical or mechanical) and prevent carrying natural contamination (suspended solids, bioburden, fat, antinutritional factors, etc.) through protein purification methods.

Read how crossflow microfiltration is used as a protein purification technique used on the raw solution to produce a very clean solution of native proteins (essentially free from suspended solids, bioburden, fat, etc.).  This can be further purified with other membranes (UF/NF/RO) and/or chromatography.
