Green leaves are the world's largest source of protein but the use of leaves as food protein is limited by the presence of indigestible fiber. Forage crops such as alfa-alfa (Lucerne) and grasses are promising for economic production of edible leaf protein.

Extraction machinery for the production of leaf protein has been designed and the protein-rich, fiber-free concentrate is found to be good quality protein from the extensive research carried out in Sri Avinashilingam Home Science College.

Abstract


Green leaves are the world's largest source of protein but the use of leaves as food protein is limited by the presence of indigestible fiber. Forage crops such as alfa-alfa (Lucerne) and grasses are promising for economic production of edible leaf protein.

Extraction machinery for the production of leaf protein has been designed and the protein-rich, fiber-free concentrate is found to be good quality protein from the extensive research carried out in Sri Avinashilingam Home Science College.
