Animal Protein Processing
ENZYMES FOR FOOD APPLICATIONS
Meat and fish processing generates large amounts of side-streams and by-products. These products are rich in nutrients and can be turned into value-added products. AB Enzymes’ product portfolio offers different enzyme solutions for animal protein applications including meat, fish, seafood, and their by-products as well as collagen, gelatin and collagen peptides.
Get more out of less and improve resource efficiency
Global meat, fish and seafood production has experienced tremendous growth over the last 50 years and will continue to grow as the world population is expanding.
The production of animal derived food has large environmental impacts: from increasing greenhouse gas emissions to use of agricultural land and use of freshwater. Therefore, it becomes increasingly important for companies to get more out of less raw materials and implement highly efficient processes. Recovering by-products improves the resource efficiency, allows more sustainable processes, and helps create a better circular economy.
Meat and fish processing generates large amounts of side-streams and by-products. These products are rich in nutrients and can be turned into hydrolysed animal protein which can then be used in value-added products:
Add value through the power of enzymes
In animal side-stream processing, the most important property is efficient hydrolysis to fulfil the different needs of a variety of processes to generate added value for customers. For example, solubilisation of protein is important when targeting protein recovery from waste streams such as by-products of slaughterhouses or fish processing to obtain excellent protein hydrolysates.
Mostly used as flavour enhancer or to increase the nutritional benefits, hydrolysed animal protein (HAP) can be processed in human nutrition and pet food applications amongst others.
Main benefits of enzymatic protein hydrolysis
- Lower manufacturing costs
- More efficient processes
- Increased yield
- Higher product quality
- New, value-added ingredients
- Less waste
- Reduced chemical and energy consumption
- Lower environmental impact
With the right enzymes and processes, the yield and value of protein, protein hydrolysates and derived products can be increased. AB Enzymes’ COROLASE® portfolio offers solutions for a variety of animal protein sources and derived products.
