What proteins come from the European starch industry?
The European starch industry processes EU-grown maize, wheat and starch potatoes as well as peas, rice and barley, and valorises all the components of these raw materials to produce a broad range of innovative and traditional products and ingredients, including starches, fibres and plant-based proteins, with a wide scope of functionalities and uses.
Some of the most important proteins produced are:
- Wheat proteins such as vital wheat gluten and derivatives
- Maize gluten meal
- Potato protein
- Pea protein
- Rice Protein
