Exploiting plant and alternatives proteins

The WAL’PROT project portfolio aims to develop new ways of adding value to plant and alternative proteins for the human food sector.


In response to the needs of this sector, WAL’PROT will develop cutting-edge solutions for adding value to new sources of protein not only from dedicated crops but also from discarded plant matter, co-products from the agri-food industry and alternative resources (insects and microalgae). The development model envisaged will incorporate a cascade approach to the recovery of all the by-products generated during the protein transformation process, to ensure a multi-sectoral approach.
