.. 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.

Soya beans are a main part of the diet of the Japanese. It is believed that this accounts for the fact that Japanese women have been shown to have low rates of breast cancer, osteoporosis and menopausal problems. In menopausal years, when women's oestrogen levels are low, the isoflavones found in soya beans, act as oestrogens relieving hot flushes, mood swings and reducing bone loss. In contrast, when women's oestrogen levels are high, the oestrogens in soya help lower pre-menstrual stress.

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.

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.

in the US, conservation tillage is used in more than 65% of the country's soybean production areas, resulting in a 93% decrease in soil erosion, a 70% reduction in herbicide runoff, and a 50% reduction in fuel use.
