Project Details

Description

Rapeseed cake is one of the largest side streams from the northern European agricultural sector. Rapeseed cake can contain up to 50% protein. This is currently primarily used as animal feed for cattle and biofuels. Rapeseed cake protein is not currently used in food, as the intake of large amounts of rapeseed cake protein is toxic to humans and animals due to the high content of glucosinolates, phenolic compounds and phytinic acid.
The purpose is to see if it is possible to reduce the levels of the said toxins through a 2-step fermentation, so that the rapeseed cake protein can subsequently be used as a food ingredient.
