Efficient processes for the production of alternative proteins: Future Foods for the growing demand for proteins
Proteins are a vital macronutrient. Alternative sources of proteins are plants, insects or residual streams in the food industry. Hosokawa Alpine and the entire Hosokawa Micron Group have developed the appropriate technologies for this. The dry fractionation of proteins consists of efficient fine grinding with the classifier mill Zirkoplex ZPS and high-performance classifying of the finely ground product with the classifier Turboplex ATP. This is how two products are ultimately created: a fine protein concentrate and a coarse starch concentrate. Hosokawa Alpine's standard dry fractionation process includes efficient fine grinding with the Contraplex CW II pin mill and high performance classifying of the finely ground product with the ATP air classifier.
