Industrial scale recovery of high-grade proteins from food-processing by-products

Project description

New technology for the extraction of whey proteins

As the earth’s population grows, scientists are looking into ways to make plant and animal protein to meet the growing demand. Alternative proteins now constitute an emerging domain within the traditional food system. As such, the potential of whey proteins (which constitute 20 % of the proteins in milk) is attracting the interest of many scientists. The EU-funded Recover4Benefit project is developing a new approach for the extraction of targeted whey proteins with the highest purity and activity. It will first establish a production facility for protein extraction from different resources and then replicate the technology at other medium-sized dairies, milk-biorefineries and biotechnology plants. The goal will be to validate the technology and develop a commercialisation strategy.
