Tour A5 28 June: Tour leaders: Stig Oddershede, Communications Manager, DLF Seeds A/S Jacob Jensen Journalist & Communications Consultant DLG New plant-based proteins Food production is currently responsible for approximately 20 per cent of to - tal global CO2 emissions. Production, processing and consumer acceptance of plant protein with less impact on the climate will be an important element in future food production. This tour gives you the opportunity to study innova - tive plant-based protein production. Grass, clover and alfalfa replace soya in poultry and pig feed BioRefine Denmark produces plant proteins based on forage grass, clover and alfalfa. The company aims to produce 7,000 tons of organic protein per year to replace soya in feed for monogastric animals such as poultry and pigs. The organic protein segment is currently the “sweet spot” for grass refinery as the commodity prices for organic soyameal are very high. With increasing 13 demands for lower climate footprints, grass protein may offer a competitive alternative to conventional soyameal in the future. Potatoes - a growing industry for food and feed KMC, which is one of the world’s leading companies within potato-based in- gredients for the food industry, has developed potato protein that is well suit - ed for plant-based and ‘free-from’ food trends. KMC processes more than one million tons of starch potatoes. The proteins are refined food products with a desirable composition of essential amino acids. KMC develops food ingredients with the aim of replacing as many animal ingredients as possible with potato-based ingredients. For example, modified potato starch can replace animal gelatinin wine gums, and potato-based in - gredients can replace casein in cheese. ***** At the end of the day, we will join Tour A4 and visit European Protein, where we will have dinner.
