lactic acid

Lactic acid

Lactic acid is a classic example of an α- hydroxyl acid. It is used in the polymer, food and beverage, personal care and pharmaceutical industries. PLA(Poly lactic acid) is a well-known biodegradable polymer made from lactic acid that is used for medical implants, decomposable packaging materials, non-woven textiles etc. In the food processing industry, lactic acid is used as a flavoring agent, buffer, preservative, viscosity and melting modifier. Derivatives of lactic acid such as sodium lactate, ammonium lactate, calcium lactate also find multiple uses across industries.

single cell protein animal nutrition

Single Cell Protein

Single cell proteins are protein extract from microbes that can be used as an animal feed. They are a sustainable source of protein to address the world’s growing demand. The protein content in the biomass is between 60-70% and can be used directly in animal feed.

 

With growing population and urbanization, global demand for food is expected to increase 100% by 2050. One of the key demand areas is high quality protein. SCP from methane is a sustainable, environmentally friendly and economically viable opportunity to meet the demand.

 

Single cell protein have applications in :

  • Animal Nutrition – Fish feed, poultry feed,
  • Food Additives – Emulsifying aids, Vitamin carriers
  • Other – Paper processing, leather processing, Foam stabilizers.
