Squeezing every last drop of goodness out of the potato crop
Gently extracting high grade proteins and starchy products to meet the growing demand for UK grown 100% plant based ingredients.
Most people are aware of the healthy fibre and starch content in potatoes, but they don’t always consider the highly nutritious protein fraction.
Branston is working alongside RootExtracts Ltd as part of a collaborative project to improve potato crop utilisation. We’ll be converting low-value potatoes into clean-label functional protein, which is ideal for use in vegetarian and vegan foods. We’ll also be generating starch-based products for a range of manufacturing applications.
