.. 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, fish meal 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 Prote´ennavorsingstigting (PNS) se hoofdoelstellings is die vervanging van ingevoerde prote´en met plaaslikgeproduseerde prote´en, asook die beter benutting van prote´en. Hierdie doelstellings word bevorder deur die befondsing van navorsing asook tegnologie-oordrag.

Navorsing word befonds ten opsigte van toepaslike verbandhoudende gewasse, oliesade, vismeel en ander prote´enbronne asook die aanwending en benutting daarvan deur die belangrikste vis-, akwakultuur-, dier- en pluimveespesies eie aan die Suid-Afrikaanse mark.

Did you know?

Japanese men are known to have the lowest rate of prostate cancer in the world, but research has shown their rate of prostate cancer increases when they immigrate to the US. Genetics and a westernized diet may have a role to play in these health differences, but substantial medical research has shown that the addition of soya in a diet plays a large role in alleviating prostate cancer.

Canola oil is a good fat.

Your body needs fat – to keep you warm, provide energy and help you absorb fat-soluble vitamins and carotenoids. The National Academy of Science Dietary Reference Intakes, developed by Canadian and American nutrition experts, recommends that fat provide between 20% and 35% of total energy intake. But some fats are healthier for you than others. Canola oil provides more of the good fats than any other popular vegetable oil.

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.

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 sautÚing and deep frying. For recipes using canola oil, visit canolainfo.org
