Alfa Laval Announces Availability of Plant Protein Processing Systems
New Plant-based protein and vegetable processing systems
Toronto -- May 11, 2022 -- Alfa Laval announced immediate availability of Plant Protein Processing Systems, allowing food manufacturers to enter new alternative protein markets.
Rising demand for alternative proteins calls for reliable wet fractionation processes that boost purity, nutritional value and yield, of protein isolates while reducing consumption of energy and water. Sustainable plant-based protein processing systems from Alfa Laval deliver reliable performance and reduce environmental impact while ensuring protein stability, appearance, texture, taste and nutritional value.
Turning oilseed crops, such as soybean, rapeseed and sunflower seed, and starch crops, including pea, chickpea, fava bean and mung bean, into high-quality proteins for food and feed requires know-how.
The new systems are energy-efficient solutions meant for plant-based protein processing systems from Alfa Laval. From oilseed and starch protein extraction, isolation and purification through to process water recovery, and wastewater treatment. The systems offer manufacturers a sound and sustainable approach to meeting the growing global demand for meat substitutes.
Food and beverage manufacturers turn to Alfa Laval for expertise, service and support to develop, test and optimize vegetable protein processing systems to ensure fast scale-up from pilot- to commercial-scale production.
With a focus on the wet fractionation process, Alfa Laval has a broad portfolio of systems for processing plant-based proteins. Whether you need reliable standalone equipment to integrate into your existing lines or complete customized production lines, Alfa Laval delivers equipment and systems for oilseed and starch protein extraction, isolation and concentration.
