Proteins & Fibres
After removing starch from cereals such as wheat and maize, the remaining vegetable matter is a combination of protein and fibres. These proteins and fibres are often collected and returned to the farming industry in the form of animal feed. Furthermore, part of the extracted starch is isolated and purified to be resistant, allowing them to be used in food and be beneficial to human digestion.
With the rise in more vegetable-based diets, especially in Europe, some of the proteins are used increasingly in food, as an alternative to animal proteins. They are a very useful and flexible alternative for consumers following a vegetarian or vegan diet, who need to find a varied source of protein in their diets.
