    Abstract

    The present invention provides a method for the production of a protein enriched fraction and a fibre enriched fraction from a vegetable material, wherein the vegetable material comprises a total fat content of 0.1 to 22.0 % by dry weight of the total vegetable material and a total starch content of 0.05 to 20 % by dry weight of the total vegetable material, said method comprising the steps of subjecting the vegetable material to (a) a milling process to obtain a vegetable flour and (b) subjecting the vegetable flour to a separation step to obtain the protein enriched fraction. The protein enriched product produced has a protein enrichment of at least 125 %, based on the total protein content of the vegetable material. The protein enriched product and the fibre enriched product can be used in food, feed and pharmaceutical products.
