How ProteinDistillery is supporting healthier diets in the plant-based sector 

Esslingen / Berlin – 17.05.2024

 As consumers increasingly focus on healthier diets and the demand for high-quality protein continues to rapidly grow (explore this GFI report on the potential of alternative proteins), ProteinDistillery is supporting healthier diets in the plant-based sector.

We are doing so by offering ingredients which, aside from being fully functional (have a look at our blog on Prew:tein™’s applications), can also improve the nutritional profile of plant-based foods. The inclusion of protein sources in the human diet is known to be key to essential body functions, like our physiology and metabolism. Moreover, protein deficiency can incite a range of risky health conditions such as malnutrition, increased immunity, or weakening of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems (here is Harvard’s overview on protein as a nutrition source).  

Understanding the potential of Prew:tein™

Yet, all proteins are not created equal, and diversifying as well as complementing protein sources is a key to better nutrition and ultimately to a better planet. As a protein sourced from brewers’ spent yeast, our Prew:tein™ covers all essential amino acids required by the human body. Furthermore, part of the potential of yeast protein as an alternative protein source is that it may include trace minerals and B-vitamins, as highlighted in this NIH article.  Our clean-label, non-animal ingredient, Prew:tein™, concentrates >75% of protein content and has a complete amino acid profile, with a PDCAAS score of 1. Prew:tein™ can reduce or even replace animal-based protein sources, such as the casein in dairy alternatives or certain binders in meat analogues, while avoiding unwanted additives, allergens and genetic modification. 

Aside from the functionalities and nutritional benefits that make Prew:tein™ a promising solution in the plant-based space. Indeed, research backs the fact that supporting the improvement of the plant-based offer on the market is critical to countering global challenges such as achieving a better distribution of food amongst populations to fairly meet nutritional requirements and even mitigating the risk of public health crises derived from zoonotic diseases (animal-to-human diseases). Another benefit would be having less environmental impact coming from industrial and doubtfully-managed animal agriculture. You can explore more on these topics on this FAIRR deep-dive on protein diversification.  

We continue to engage with players in the exciting alternative proteins space to uncover the potential of our innovative process and enable businesses in the food industry to meet consumer demands for better protein sources.
