Protein recovery technology in starch production
A typical potato is constituted of 80% water. Each year, billions liters of wastewater are discharged as a by-product of potato starch production. Our fit-for-purpose membrane solution is engineered for recovering high volumes of potable water quality from this waste stream for reuse in the manufacturing process as well as recovering valuable potato protein. It is well known that the essential amino acid index of potato protein is considered to be of the best protein source in the industry.
Additional to water recovery, proteins extracted from food processes using our innovative separation technique has excellent stability which is critical to maintain native amino acid characteristics.
