For the sugar production in Europe millions of tonnes of sugar beets are harvested. During the harvesting the leaves are cut from the beets and left in the Field. Cosun develops a production method to extract the valuable protein Rubisco from these leaves. Rubisco is a plant based protein with unique properties in a wide range of applications in the food industry and specially for the development of new products in the protein transition.
