Faba protein concentrate 55
- Plant name:
- Vicia faba (also known as the broad bean or fava bean)
- Europe, Middle East, Asia
- Nutritional and functional ingredient
- Water-binder and emulsifier
Besides being rich in protein, our native faba bean protein concentrate 55 is also an excellent water-binder and emulsifier. Faba bean protein is extracted by mechanical separation. The first step in the production process is the removal of the shells and skins from the beans. The protein and starch fractions are afterwards separated. The result is a fine, cream to brown-coloured powder with a specific flavour and aroma.
Faba bean protein concentrate can be used as a gluten-free substitute for cereal products in feeds for (young) animals, such as pets, fish, calves (CMR) and piglets. Adding faba bean protein concentrate can improve the incorporation of fats. When used in biscuits, for example, it creates a firmer texture.
