From seeds to high protein drinks using dry fractionation.

Project: PhD

Project Details


Plant-based proteins have been investigated extensively over the last years. Mungbean is known for its well-balanced amino acid composition and relatively high protein content. Unfortunately, the functionality of commercially available mung bean protein is often poorer compared to animal-derived protein, especially caused by its poor solubility and related high viscosity in suspensions. A promising approach is so-called protein coacervates, that formed spontaneously by a liquid-liquid phase separation, where protein enriched droplets are kinetically stable against coalescence and can be produced at low cost. It makes coacervates interesting building blocks of high protein products and a promising vehicle to deliver plant-derived proteins.
