Plant-Based Foods and Proteins summit 2021

Clextral will participate to the Summit + Expo Plant-Based Foods and Proteins Americas 2021, organized by Bridge2Food. It will be held between September 27th and September 29th. This live online event is an opportunity to meet professionals from the plant-based industry and develop new business. 

Join us at this event to assist to the conference made by Julie Prost, Pilot Plant Manager and Process Engineer at Clextral USA : « Plant Based Meat Analog » between 12:00 and 12:25 pm (CDT).

This is an opportunity to discover how you can produce plant-based products with the twin screw extrusion technology. Using this technology will present several advantages : 

  • More consistency in production and control of product quality
  • Increased productivity
  • Greater flexibility so you can process a wide range of raw materials
  • Optimized footprint thanks to energy and water savings
  • Simple and easy to maintain and clean

You can also learn more about the HMEC (High Moisture Extrusion Cooking) process which is used to make fibrated proteins.

This technology helps manufacturers to answer the consumers’ demand by making environmental-friendly and healthy products (cholesterol-free, low in fat, high in protein and fiber content, rich in nutrients). These fibrated proteins products are used as ingredients for vegetarian or vegan dishes (such as meat analogs) or directly prepared for ready-to-eat prepared meals. They are made with extruded fibrous proteins extracted from plants : soya, cereals, pulses (peas, beans, lentils, lupine) or sunflower.
