Global ingredient manufacturer Kemin Industries has acquired food technology company, Proteus Industries in a deal that adds sustainable clean label yield enhancement technology to the Kemin Food Technologies portfolio of ingredient solutions.

 

Kemin will rebrand the ingredient technology as Proteus, which is now available to Kemin customers in the US to help commercial food processors improve retention of moisture and texture without reliance on artificial ingredients.

 

Proteus has patented clean label protein ingredients in a range of meat and poultry and protein-based applications.

“We identified a need within the industry for an effective, clean label yield improvement technology and saw the Proteus technology as a way to fulfill this unmet need,” he says...
