The value of MPE

Enzymatic processing adds value to slaughterhouse coproducts, turning them into valuable food ingredients such as meat protein extracts (MPE). MPE can be used in products such as meat cuts, processed foods, stocks, soups, bouillons and sausages. With MPE, the final product can contain less salt, yet retain greater tenderness and flavor, while improving the economy of the production process.

Maximize the value
of co-products

By using enzymes to convert your trimmings into meat protein extracts, you create a new protein source for use in a wide variety of processed foods. The food industry is eager for such solutions, because extracts help reduce the salt content of processed foods, while adding extra flavor and nutritional value.
