Background/Description

Protein serves many functionalities in food, including emulsifying, gelling, foaming, flavour, texture and solubility. Plant proteins are structurally and functionally different from animal proteins and can be challenging to replace animal proteins entirely. As such, we are looking for efficient plant protein extraction methods to achieve highly functional plant-derived protein ingredients. 

Technology Specification

The company is interested in methods to extract plant – based protein with a high yield.

  • Higher protein extraction content (>50%)
  • Improved purity of protein
  • Enhanced protein functionalities
  • Naturally-derived method

The company would like to explore different types of plants not limiting to:

  • Cereals e.g. barley, corn, oats, rice, wheat, grains
  • Legumes e.g. beans, pea, lentils
  • Edible Seeds e.g. buckwheat, quinoa, nuts
  • Tubers e.g. potatoes, yams
  • Oliseeds e.g. cottonseed, hemp seed, peanut, rapeseed, sunflower
  • Seaweed/Algae
  • Sprouts
  • Vegetable side streams

The company is open to extraction method with wide range of Technology Readiness Level (TRL) and seeking open collaborator to test bed.

WHAT WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN

  • Extractions method with low yield (<35%)
  • Traditional/Chemical extraction method

Preferred Business Model

  • Business Collaboration (Joint Venture)
  • Licensing
  • Others
  • R&D Collaboration
