As consumer demand for clean-label products continues to rise, biotechnology company Pureture introduced an advancement in plant-based casein protein technology. Casein protein is traditionally found only in dairy products, providing crucial texture and nutritional benefits. The innovation enhances the quality and functionality of clean-label foods, while reducing production costs, making healthier food options more accessible to consumers.

Recent studies highlight a growing trend among consumers who prioritize clean-label products, which are perceived as healthier and more transparent. According to Innova Market Insights, over two-thirds of global consumers are influenced by clean-label claims, associating them with the absence of additives and the use of natural ingredients. However, a report by Acosta notes that while consumers prefer clean-label products, they often find them more expensive, which can be a barrier to purchase.

Pureture addresses this challenge with its innovative plant-based casein protein technology. The technology is non-GMO and emphasizes sustainability. This breakthrough maintains the texture and stability of food without the need for traditional emulsifiers or thickeners, thereby minimizing the use of additives in conventional food manufacturing. Furthermore, this technology enhances production efficiency, significantly reducing costs and making clean-label products more affordable and accessible to a broader audience.

Pureture's new cultivation technology for plant-based casein protein utilizes innovative methods to ensure that food products maintain their desired texture and stability naturally. This technology leverages novel ingredients to boost yeast growth and activity, reducing cultivation time by up to 30%. Additionally, it virtually eliminates foam formation during the process, which traditionally requires the use of antifoaming agents and other additives.

Beyond health benefits, Pureture's technology offers significant environmental advantages. The yeast cultivation process uses molasses, a by-product of sugarcane processing, as essential nutrients, adhering to upcycling methods. This approach reduces waste and minimizes the environmental impact of food production through resource recycling.
