ProteinDistillery partners with Netzsch for their production plant

Esslingen / Berlin – 25.03.2024

Our relevance in shaping the future of food  

ProteinDistillery uses an innovative patented process to transform various biomass sources into functional proteins for commercial food production. Currently focusing on brewer’s yeast, the transformation of other industry side streams is planned for the future.  

Our core product, Prew:tein ™, is a compelling alternative to traditional animal-based proteins, which have long been considered the gold standard in the food industry. ProteinDistillery is the first company to provide a functional vegan protein that delivers functionality akin to egg white protein.  

The result is heightened consumer acceptance of vegan alternatives, translating into increased sales for our B2B clients in food manufacturing. To start producing larger volume to support our customer demands and expand our product portfolio, ProteinDistillery is currently building its own production facilities in Southern Germany.  

Our mission conveys a strong transformation within the food industry. Our functional products are crucial for ensuring a stable and secure food supply chain in the face of fluctuating environmental conditions and geopolitical uncertainties. By valorizing unused streams, ProteinDistillery not only optimizes resource utilization but also addresses the critical need for sustainable and efficient food production methods. By turning different types of biomasses into products, it reduces the risks that come from depending on single products and the need for specific weather and locations. This approach fosters a more resilient and innovative industry landscape.
