Our Plant Protein Research team focuses on:

  • Application and development of modern technologies for protein extraction from plant matrices aiding the retention of their functionality for wide variety of applications in foods
  • Characterization of composition, sensorial and technological properties of protein concentrates and isolates for various applications in plant-based dairy and meat analogues and functional foods
  • Characterization of the effect of technological treatments on the structure and functionality of plant proteins and characteristics of final product

TFTAK team provides an integrated service of the development of plant protein extraction technologies at small or intermediate laboratory scale as well as small pilot plant scale, characterization of extracted proteins and further application of protein concentrates in product development in cooperation with the departments of Plant-based meat alternatives, Plant-based dairy alternatives, and Functional Foods and Beverages.

Let us innovate together!
