Webinar description

What are the applications of mung bean and yellow pea in plant-based foods? Join us on November 17th for our next Science of Alt Protein seminar where Miek Schlangen, M.Sc., of Wageningen University, will review the extraction of mung bean and yellow pea into protein-rich fractions using dry fractionation. She will also describe the functional properties of these protein-rich fractions and evaluate their use in plant-based foods. Additionally, the use of transglutaminase to improve the functional properties of mung bean and yellow peas will be discussed.
