Process Development for Plant Raw Materials

5 Schüsseln mit Lupinensamen in verschiedenen Ausführungen

We develop mechanical and extraction processes on up to a small pilot plant scale for isolating plant raw materials efficiently and cost effectively. The resulting fractions, namely lipids, proteins, soluble dietary fiber, and secondary plant ingredients, are then modified enzymatically, chemically, and physically. This customizes their functionalities for use in foods and for technical applications. The processes and products we develop make an important contribution to solving bioeconomic challenges such as guaranteeing adequate global food production, the production of healthy and safe foods, and the industrial utilization of renewable raw materials.
