Proteins for food
With the acquisition of the high-tech production site of Collapro Ten Kate expands its portfolio of functional proteins with high-end quality products and has strengthened its position in the market of pure functional pork proteins.
Together with our protein MEPRO 85 we are now able to meet any specific customer demand in terms of functionality, texture and applicability. The competitive advantages of MEPRO 85 and Collapro will help our customers to excel in their markets.
From now on our protein activities will operate under the name of Ten Kate Protein Technologies with the brand names Collapro and MEPRO 85
MEPRO 85 is a pure functional pork protein with a high collagen content. MEPRO 85 has excellent emulsifying and water-binding properties, making it highly suitable as a meat substitute and for use in meat products. It is also a source of protein and an excellent binding agent in other applications, such as soups and sauces. MEPRO 85 reduces formulation costs without making any concessions in terms of taste or texture. MEPRO 85 is a dry powder with a neutral colour and taste. It can be mixed easily in dry and wet processes. We will be happy to advise you on how to customise your processes to make optimal use of the competitive advantages of MEPRO 85 in your market.
Proteins for pet food
We develop functional proteins with specific properties such as a high degree of acceptance, good digestion and appealing taste and aroma for pet food.
Our proteins are easy to mix with other dry ingredients in animal feed.
Proteins for aqua feed
Processed animal proteins (PAP’s) such as Meat and bone meal (MBM) are good candidates for fish meal replacement. They contain high nutrient values comparable to fish meal and no anti-nutrient factors that negatively affect growth performance. The PAP produced by Ten Kate herewith can be a very valuable, safe, cost efficient and sustainable ingredient for fish feed formulation.
