AIMThe aim of the research partnership PROMINENT is to develop techno-economically and environmentally viable protein ingredients and foods from wheat & rice side streams.  Read more about the project summary here


Disintegration, fractionation and extraction technologies: bioprocessing, dry and wet milling, air classification, novel extraction solvents, membrane separation, expanded bed adsorption.Enzymatic and thermo-mechanical methods to improve techno-functional and sensory properties of protein ingredients.Applications: pasta, biscuits, cakes and beverages.Assessment of quality, techno-economic feasibility, sustainability and market potential.Designing strategies for marketing, dissemination, and exploitation of innovations.

You can find all proteins in the medically proven weight loss supplements, So its suggested to use only high protein supps.
