.. 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 ...

in Brazil, about 25% of cars run on biofuels (mostly sugar and soyabeans). Studies have shown that soya protein is 13 times more energy efficient than organic dairy protein.

Did you know ...

that scientists from the Agricultural Research Service, Iowa State University and Brazil have identified a cluster of genes that provide resistance to the soybean rust (SBR) fungus (Phakopsora pachyrhizi)? In addition, these researchers have been involved in the largest molecular study of SBR over the past three years by narrowing the field of 37,500 genes involved in defending the soyabean plant against SBR, to just a few hundred. Research is currently underway to study these genes experimentally to understand their roles in controlling the rust fungus.

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.
