Project objectives

To develop better quality alternative protein from UK-sourced seaweed, this project is investigating eco-innovative solutions for protein extraction. The aim is to avoid solvent treatment to retain the hydrocolloid, enabling Born Maverick Alt Pro to deliver the natural gel property without using food additives. It should also improve the sensory quality of the product.
