Product description

What is presented?

Example illustration of the production of functional amyloid aggregates (fibrils) from whey protein. Presentation of future possible applications of the innovative biomaterial, for example as a film former.

What is special?

Using a special treatment, the whey proteins are separated into nanometre-sized threads, which have very good functional properties for the production of edible gels and film coatings.

What are the potentials?

The materials are biodegradable and harmless. In the future, whey protein threads could be used for developing surface coatings. Due to their liquid crystalline behaviour, there is potential for an alignment of the surface charge during film formation.
