Protein sources Other Than meat

Complete protein

Roquette separates wheat, maize, pea and potato into their components – starch, oil, fiber and protein. Apart the carbohydrate resource, proteins are certainly among the most valuable derivatives, especially appreciated for their nutritive value.

  • Pea protein

    Pea protein is both a highly nutritive, digestible source of vegetable protein. For the food industry, NUTRALYS® pea protein is a highly purified GMO-free protein with amino-acids content close to that of the ideal protein as recommended by FAO/WHO.
    It is a supplement to the cereal proteins that is as rich in lysine, with excellent emulsifying and water retention properties making it particularly appreciated in meat and fish products.

  • Wheat gluten

    Wheat gluten is a unique protein with regard to its visco-elastic properties. VITEN® is the Roquette vital wheat gluten issued from sophisticated wheat selection, particularly appreciated in the milling and baking industries.
    Beyond its nutritive properties, VITEN® exhibits water absorption and retention up to twice its dry weight, with a natural combination of gliadin (extensibility) and glutenin (elasticity) for original characteristics.

    In the feed industry, non-soluble vital wheat gluten is adapted to the aqua-feed, for fishes and shrimps nutrition, while the soluble wheat protein VITEN® CWS is mainly used in the calf milk-replacers diets.

  • Maize (corn) gluten meal is a must among proteins used in the feed industry. Due to the carotenoïds pigments included in the “zein” maize protein, GLUTALYS® offers an original yellow coloration particularly appreciated for laying hens (orange shade of egg yolks) and poultry (meat pigmentation).

    Qualities of this highly digestible source of protein with a low mineral content are also appreciated in pet foods, cattle feed and fish farming, as well as in human foodstuffs and fermentation processes.

  • Potato protein
    Potato protein, the TUBERMINE®brand, is particularly rich in highly digestible amino-acids lysine, methionine, tryptophan and threonine, and particularly suitable for feeding piglets, calves and poultry.
  • Corn steep

    Corn steep is the first ingredient extracted from maize at the beginning of its wet-milling process. It consists in the soluble components, mainly amino-acids used as a nutritive substrate in the fermentation industries, for the growth of various microorganisms.
