Arbiom’s wood-derived protein ingredient demonstrates efficacy in alternative meat applications

June 14, 2020 |

In North Carolina, Arbiom, an AgTech company developing solutions to convert wood into food and feed products, said its first commercial protein ingredient, SylPro, can successfully be included in alternative meat applications. Arbiom partnered with a leading extrusion company on a proof-of-concept study to evaluate SylPro for use in human food applications and existing meat alternative products.

In the study, SylPro was used in meat analog product prototypes in place of conventional plant-based protein ingredients. In particular, SylPro successfully replaced critical ingredients including soy, pea, and wheat gluten without compromising taste or product quality. The results demonstrate the potential for SylPro to replace ingredients that play a functional role in the final product, such as binding, but may have restrictions due to allergen concerns, in the case of wheat or soy, or sourcing concerns, in the case of egg.

Compared to other proteins, SylPro has the lowest GHG emissions per kilogram.
