High value protein products in seaweed

Project Details

Description

The overall aim of the project is to develop new technologies that will ensure full utilization of the seaweed raw materials used for carrageenan production. More specifically, the aim is to develop new technologies to extract proteins from the seaweed either before or after extraction of carrageenan. Different mechanical and enzymatic technologies will be evaluated. The protein composition and the quality of the carrageenan fraction after extraction of proteins will be determined. The process will be scaled up to pilot scale if promising results are obtained in lab scale
