In the biofuel business most proteins in the raw material are either discarded or become part of low value feed products. However, during ethanol fermentation using crop sourced raw material significant quantities of functional proteins can be captured and utilized in high-value food applications.
Unique technologies are required to process the massive amounts of protein rich side streams generated by the biofuel industry to produce valuable protein isolate sof food grade quality. Upfront offers technology to capture proteins originating from the crop source as well as microbial proteins from the process itself.
The combined process allows production of both biofuels and high value food protein products.
