Isolation of potato proteins using simulated moving bed technology.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The simulated moving bed (SMB) concept of chromatography was applied to treat potato juice from production of starch. The aim was to harvest proteins. SMB offers possibilities to operate with different process strategies and in this study it was shown possible to harvest up to 80% of the protein in a process utilizing very little extra water besides that already present in the juice. After depleting protein from the juice in the adsorption step, the flow through was used to recondition the column after elution. The present study illustrates a new concept of applying chromatography as a capturing step of bulk products. Biotechnol. Bioeng. (c) 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
