Development of an egg-white replacer from natural single cell proteins [On-demand webinar]

Video-Development of an egg-white replacer from natural single cell proteins [On-demand webinar]

FUMI Ingredients has developed a processing platform to produce animal-free food ingredients, from micro-organisms that have very similar characteristics as egg-whites. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn more.

The specific solution is to transform micro-organisms such as yeast or micro-algae into chicken-free egg-whites. This vegan egg-white can be applied as emulsifier, binding or foaming agent in, for example, bakery products or meat replacers.
