AF-18050 -Protein Valorisation from Brewers Spent Grain (BO-57-002-002, BO-44-002-025)

Project: LNV project

Project Details


The envisioned tangible result of this project is the experimental demonstration of a fully developed and complete pretreatment, extraction and purification process of protein from BSG that can successfully supply protein of desired properties for demonstrated application in novel food concepts. This result will serve multiple purposes. It is estimated that the value of extracted and purified protein will increase by a factor 7, increasing the value of the total BSG products on the Dutch market from roughly 13 to 86 million euro. Solid insights in the relation between protein extraction and purification on one hand and protein functionalities on the other hand are key for successful application in food. Successful extraction and application will contribute to an increased protein supply worldwide. Finally this new protein supply could reduce the ecological footprint as import of e.g. soy could be partly prevented.
