With a view to preparing substitutes for liver or other animal protein hydrolysates used in the treatment of protein malnutrition, a process has been developed based on sesame and mustard cakes as the starting materials. The laboratory process has been successfully scaled up to pilot plant production to compute tentative costing schedule. Essentially the process consists in defatting the cake, isolating the protein by peptization and isoelectric precipitation, enzymatically digesting the protein isolate by papain, and concentrating the digest under reduced pressure. The final product is a light brown fluffy powder, rich in almost all the essential amino acids. Growth experiments with rats have indicated that the product is comparable to commercial casein although supplementation with lysine could further enhance its biological value.
