Vegetable Raw Materials as Sources of Protein
Soy protein and soy protein concentrate
Soy beans contain about 40 percent vegetable protein. Most soy beans are used for obtaining soy oil. This is used as the basis for foodstuffs or biodiesel. Soy protein can be produced as a concentrate and isolated.
Peas are not exclusively sources of protein. Starch production also plays a central role. It is important to isolate both materials effectively.
Lupins are a valuable source of protein. The protein is of the highest quality, and can be used as a food supplement or animal feed for example.
The rapeseed plant forms pods after flowering. The pods contain small seeds. Each of these seeds contains up to 40 percent oil. This can be extracted using industrial centrifuges. The residual rapeseed meal is used as fodder for animals.
Flottweg Offers You the Best Solution for Your Protein Extraction
The Decanter and Sedicanter® from Flottweg offer a range of special features:
The clarified phase is removed via an adjustable impeller. This means that the dry solid content and the purity of the centrate can be custom-adapted.
Our machines meet all hygiene requirements and can be used optimally in the extraction of vegetable protein.
The Flottweg Simp Drive®
This adjusts itself automatically to different load levels, and achieves the maximum possible dry solids in each case.
