Voudouris, Panagiotis \ Tamayo Tenorio, Angelica \ Lesschen, Jan Peter \ Kyriakopoulou, Konstantina \ Sanders, Johan P.M. \ Goot, Atze Jan van der \ Bruins, Marieke E. \ 2017

In 2013 a new STW research programme was started on sustainable protein recovery. This STW Protein Programme consisted of five sustainable protein technology projects, which aimed at developing innovative methods to extract proteins from plant leaves, microalgae and insects to meet the increasing demand for food proteins for humans and livestock. The aim of the additional STW-project ‘Meer en Beter Eiwit’ was to summarize and evaluate the main results and conclusions of these five projects. Besides, some more recent additional insight on protein extraction was supplemented. Project partners including WUR, knowledge institutes and industry were interviewed to obtain their opinion on the project performed and future research needs.This has led to a vision document that gives direction to future research in the field of protein and technology.The approach of this project was to study the topic from start (biomass) via technology to finish (product). It was further put into a larger perspective, looking at the entire chain. When relevant, additional aspects such a soil quality and global protein demands were included.Biomass choice. When choosing a particular protein-recovery technology,biomass selection is the first requirement. Much research is being done on new biomass. However, the use of existing raw materials and residual flows should not be neglected.By building on existing processes and chains, fast(er)implementation is possible. Traditional crops like grain are relatively dry, and the proteins are present in protein bodies. Therefore, they are more easily extracted and give high yields and purities. New, green crops still require a lot of development.Protein streams in the world Protein-rich sources, like soybeans, rapeseed, maize and wheat are being consumed by both humans and animals.The crop with the largest production volume in Europe is is wheat, followed by potato, maize and barley. Together these four crops cover about 85% of the production of protein crops. Worldwide, maize is the largest crop. By far, the largest amount of proteins is being used in feed (>75%),followed by food consumption. Only a limited amount of proteins is isolated for specific use, for example as emulsifiers in different food formulations. An even smaller amount is used for application in chemicals or materials.Protein purity and functionality. Much research from the past focused on obtaining pure protein, e.g. RuBisCo from green leaves or protein from potato juice. Such processes can be economically feasible if the protein produced has a specific functionality, which allows for use as a high-quality food ingredient. However,high purity is not always required to obtain a certain functionality. In such cases the use of less refined,functional fractions is an interesting alternative.Mild separation and fractionation. When purified components are replaced by functional fractions, less intensive separation conditions can be used.Dry separation of proteins yielding a concentrate could bean alternative to wet separation yielding an isolate. Energy consumption is less, and a more native protein can be obtained. Fractionation can also lead to more complete use of biomass, generating little to no side streams.Chain approach for economy and sustainability. Next, it is also important to include the possibility of complete utilization of the raw material and closing cycles.These latter aspects can make or break economic feasibility and sustainability in a process. Efficient and effective use of protein and nitrogen, while maintaining biodiversity, is the most important development point for sustaining life on this earth. Modern agriculture should further improve nitrogen and feed use efficiencies to increase sustainability. Program evaluation. Next to conclusions on the content of the five projects, the evaluation also provides conclusions on the set-up of the STW/EZ programme on sustainable protein. Both academic and industrial participants acknowledged the added value of the link between fundamental research by a PhD and applied research by research institutes that was made in the project set-up. They also partly attributed the project successes to the multidisciplinary approach in the projects. The possibility within the projects to look at all aspects, and the ability to think anew on existing processes and develop new concepts of biorefinery greatly added to current scientific knowledge on protein extraction.

Kansrijke eiwitgewassen is een project dat in 2016 tot stand is gekomen vanuit de Brancheorganisatie Akkerbouw rond de teelt van peulvruchten voor menselijke consumptie. In dit project wordt aansluiting gezocht bij het reeds lopende project vanuit de Europese Unie, Protein-2-Food dat zich naast de teelt ook richt op de verwerking en vermarkting van nieuwe consumentenproducten op basis van plantaardige eiwitten. In deze eindrapportage wordt verslag gedaan van de uitkomsten van de teeltproeven in 2016. In deze veldproeven is gekeken naar blauwe en witte lupine, veldbonen en soja. De proeven lagen op twee locaties: Klazienaveen (Veenkoloniën) op dalgrond en WPR-Lelystad (Flevopolder) op jonge zeeklei. Vanwege het hoge kalkgehalte van het proefveld in Lelystad zijn hier geen blauwe lupines uitgezaaid. Uitvoering van de proeven werd in Lelystad verzorgd door WPR en in Klazienaveen door het LBI.

Food for the Circular Economy : policy brief [Monograph]
Rood, Trudy \ Muilwijk, Hanneke \ Westhoek, Henk \ 2017
change - cycling - economics - food production - food wastage - natural resources - resource management - agro-industrial chains - residual streams - biobased economy

Making the transition to a circular economy requires a radical transformation of various production chains. The food chain is just one. Various policy areas are faced with the task of precipitating this transition to a circular food system. Added value can be achieved by taking an integrated approach to the transition; in this policy brief, the authors set out a framework for such an integrated approach. The authors have identified three requirements for this. Firstly, in a circular economy, natural resources must be effectively used and managed. Such resources include soil, water and biodiversity, but also minerals. These resources are essential to be able to produce renewable resources. Secondly, optimum use of food is important. Reducing food waste is an important starting point in this context, as is a diet with less highly processed food, or more vegetable protein and less animal protein. Also important is a reduced use of natural resources and less environmental pressure. Finally, it is important to make optimum use of residue streams, such as tomato stalks, beet pulp and stale bread. In this way, as little biomass as possible will be lost.

Waterlinzen : heerlijk en gezond [Presentation]
Gauw, C. \ Derksen, Y. \ 2015
nutrition - biobased economy - biomass - plant protein

ABC Kroos BV is nu in publiek-private samenwerking met bedrijven als Colubris BV, kennisinstellingen als Hogeschool VHL en WageningenUR en met steun van de provincies Gelderland en Overijssel begonnen deze waardeketen van teelt tot hoogwaardige eiwitproducten van de grond te krijgen. De toepassing van waterlinzen als zodanig in voeding is daarbij één route, maar de winning van het pure eiwit met voor voedingsmiddelformuleringen interessante functionele eigenschappen is een andere route. Deze laatste optie, waarbij plantaardig eiwit uit waterlinzen als ingrediënt dierlijke eiwitten kan vervangen blijkt zowel economisch als qua duurzaamheid zeer aantrekkelijk te zijn. Dit boekje geeft als aanloop op een bredere (her)introductie van dit gewas alvast een aantal heerlijke recepten op basis van waterlinzen, inclusief een handleiding om waterlinzen voor eigen gebruik op een voedselveilige manier te telen.
