Food proteins today ,tomorrow,and beyond

  1. 1. Food Proteins Today, tomorrow and beyond
  2. 2. To meet the increasing demand from a growing population we will need to produce more food in the next 40 years than has been produced in the previous 8,000 years. Jason Clay, Senior Vice President WWF Protein global food context Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond
  3. 3. Proteins and sustainability Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond
  4. 4. Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond Sources of common dietary proteins • Animal -  Muscle, blood, milk, egg • Botanical -  Cereals (wheat, corn, barley, oats, rice) -  Legumes (peas, soybeans etc.) -  Tubers (potato) -  Oil seeds (Peanut, rapeseed) • Microalgae -  Blue green seaweed (Spirulina) • Microorganisms -  Mycoprotein
  5. 5. Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond Key functional properties •  Gelation from denaturisation and aggregation -  Properties of gel dependant on Degree of unfolding and kinetics of aggregation -  Driven by heat, pH, ionic strength -  Globular proteins irreversible gels -  Fibrous proteins e.g. gelatine from collagen thermally reversible gels •  Interfacial properties -  Foam and emulsion stability •  Film formation •  Primary Building block for life
  6. 6. Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond Dairy protein - Whey •  Whey protein –  In the past regarded as a waste stream from cheese manufacturing process –  Now regarded as a valuable material that contains wide range of biologically active proteins with functional, nutritional and physiological properties •  Challenges present in low concentrations, high cost of isolation, globular nature resulting in thermal denaturisation -  Commercial production using membrane or ion exchange •  Concentrates up to 80% protein in which little denaturisation has occurred •  Betalactoglobulin is most allergenic and so removed for infant formulas
  7. 7. Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. Steve Jobs Dairy protein - Whey Whey Protein Concentrate In Excess if $1bn
  8. 8. Without Creativity there would be no progress – Edward de Bono Valorisation - Whey
  9. 9. Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond Dairy protein uses •  Infant nutrition –  Whey Protein hydrosylates are particularly favoured in infant nutrition because the hydrolysis breaks down the allergenic structures •  Sports nutrition –  Whey protein also is one of the richest sources of leucine, an essential amino acid that triggers initiation of muscle protein synthesis and athletes recovery •  Yoghurts –  Denaturisation of whey proteins provide the texture in yoghurts by increasing water binding capacity –  Growing trend of Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt because the straining process leaves a more concentrated product –  Yoplaits Proforce is a 2x protein level yoghurt for children •  Health function –  Caesin and whey proteins are a rich source of peptides that reduce blood pressure and may induce satiety –  Simpless™ from CPKelco is a microparticulated whey protein used to deliver low fat food
  10. 10. Food Proteins - Today, tomorrow and beyond Egg protein •  12.6% of edible portion of egg is protein •  Polyfunctional properties of eggs from the various proteins –  Foaming from egg white e.g. sponge cake, meringue –  Gelation/coagulation e.g. custards, boiled eggs quiche –  Emulsification from egg yolk e.g. mayo, salad dressing •  Fractionation and modification to produce enhanced functionality •  Egg albumin contains numerous unique proteins, lysozyme has attracted most attention as an antimicrobial agent particularly against gram positive bacteria Protein Protein fraction present in egg white [%] Denaturation temperature [°C] Ovalbumin 58 77 S-Ovalbumin 85 Ovotransferrin 13 60 Ovomucoid 11 70 Ovomucin 3.5 Lysozym 3.5 81
