Alternative Food Proteins Development Service

Alternative Food Proteins Development Service

Alternative proteins are derived from plant, microbial, and animal cell cultures, in place of traditional animal protein sources. This helps to reduce resource use while producing more high-quality protein. Aprofood offers alternative protein development services based on our technical expertise and extensive experience.

Benefits of Alternative Food Proteins

Alternative proteins reduce global environmental pollution and waste of resources, and have zero cholesterol, low fat and other health advantages, reduce the risk of disease caused by meat products, to meet the concept of green and healthy consumption.

  • Resource efficiency
    Alternative protein sources, such as plant proteins and insect proteins, are typically more resource efficient.
  • Health and nutrition
    Alternative protein products are nutritionally adjusted to reduce the amount of saturated fat, cholesterol, and salt to meet consumer demand for healthier foods.
  • Innovation and diversity
    The development of alternative proteins are used to create a variety of alternative meat products, dairy alternatives, vegetarian options.

Our Service

With our proven technology systems and extensive industry experience, Aprofood offers a full range of alternative protein development services and product optimization support. Our alternative protein development services include but are not limited to the following.

Fig 1. Insect Protein Development

Insect Protein Development

The development of insect proteins requires the establishment of an insect breeding system and the extraction of the proteins from the insects using appropriate methods. In order to obtain more functional proteins, insect proteins need to be processed, flavored, and the fiber content needs to be regulated.

Fig 2. Microbial Protein Development

Microbial Protein Development

The development of microbial proteins mainly utilizes microorganisms (e.g., bacteria, algae, etc.) for protein production. Microbial proteins require the selection of microbial strains suitable for protein production, such as E. coli, brewer's yeast, unicellular algae, etc.

Fig 3. Cellular Protein Development

Cellular Protein Development

The development of cellular proteins is based on the establishment of a suitable cell culture system, through the introduction of the gene for the target protein into the target cell, and then the protein is produced through the process of gene expression and transcription and translation.

Fig 4. Plant Protein Development

Plant Protein Development

Plant proteins can be developed and produced through plant physiological processes and biotechnological means. The genes for the target proteins are introduced into plant cells through genetic engineering technology to realize the synthesis and accumulation of the target proteins.

Evaluation of Alternative Food Proteins

The goal of alternative protein validation is to ensure the quality, safety and suitability of alternative proteins to facilitate their widespread use in food, feed and other applications. Alternative proteins are validated through functionality assessment, digestion and absorption studies, physiological effect assessment, quality control and safety testing.
