Technology to turn waste from rapeseed oil production into valuable food protein.

Project description

Rapeseed cake could yield proteins for human consumption

More and more people are turning to plant-based proteins to meet dietary requirements for varying reasons. Rapeseed cake is a high-protein, high-energy product made from heavy-pressed rapeseed formed after oil production. While it is commonly used as feed for farm animals, it has not been exploited for human consumption. The EU-funded ALSEOS project could change that very shortly. Scientists are planning to showcase their multi-patented technology for extraction of high-quality protein from rapeseed cake in a full-scale demonstrator. The biorefinery is expected to double the revenue for rapeseed processors.
