.. WELCOME TO THE PROTEIN RESEARCH FOUNDATION ..

Welcome to the Protein Research Foundation

The main objectives of the Protein Research Foundation (PRF) are to replace imported protein used in animal feed with locally produced protein and to encourage the better utilisation of this protein. The objectives are promoted through research funding and technology transfer.

Funding is available for research on appropriate protein crops, oil seeds and other protein sources and to improve the efficiency of utilisation of these proteins in the livestock, poultry and aquaculture industries in South Africa.
 

Die Proteïennavorsingstigting (PNS) se hoofdoelstellings is die vervanging van ingevoerde proteïen met plaaslikgeproduseerde proteïen, asook die beter benutting van proteïen. Hierdie doelstellings word bevorder deur die befondsing van navorsing asook tegnologie-oordrag.

Navorsing word befonds ten opsigte van die toepaslike verbandhoudende gewasse, oliesade en ander proteïenbronne asook die aanwending en benutting daarvan deur die belangrikse akwakultuur-, dier- en pluimveespesies eie aan die Suid-Afrikaanse mark.

Canola oil really cooks

Canola oil is light and clear and has a mild flavor that lets spices and herbs shine through in vinaigrettes. It enhances the delicate taste of baked goods. It delivers and seals in marinade flavors and its high smoke point makes it ideal for sautéing and deep frying. For recipes using canola oil, visit canolainfo.org

Did you know?

Soybeans have been called "meat without bones" because, although this versatile bean is small in comparison to many other beans, it is packed with protein, very similar to the protein in meat, dairy products and eggs. The soybean plant is one of the few plants that provides nearly all the essential amino acids, that make up proteins.

Did you know ...

in a recent study it was shown that women with breast cancer who included about two servings of soya protein per day, had a 7.4% mortality rate and an 8.0% cancer recurrence rate. In comparison, women with breast cancer who consumed less soya had a 10.3% mortality rate and a 11.2% recurrence rate, i.e., about a 30% decrease in risk of mortality and recurrence in breast cancer patients.

Canola oil is made from canola

Canola oil is pressed from tiny canola seeds produced by beautiful yellow flowering plants of the Brassica family. Cabbages and cauliflower are also part of the same botanical family! Canola was bred naturally from its parent rapeseed in the early 1970s. Canola, however, is NOT rapeseed – their nutritional profiles are very different.
