.. 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 vis-, 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

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.

Did you know ...

over the past 12 years, crops improved through agricultural biotechnology, have produced more nutritious and higher yields and consequently higher profit margins. In the history of agriculture, no other advances have been adopted as quickly. In addition, through the use of these crops, the US has decreased carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to removing 6.3 million cars off the roads. These findings show that biotechnology is safe, contributing to increased human health as well as environmental and agricultural sustainability.

Canola oil is a good source of the antioxidant vitamin E

One serving of canola oil each day will deliver about a quarter of all the vitamin E you need to protect your body's fats and proteins from free radical damage. Vitamin E may also help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and memory loss.
