Food-tech start-up Prolupin, a producer of alternative dairy products using proteins derived from lupin beans, announces the first closing of a double-digit million euro growth financing round, enabling the company to increasingly address demand and expand internationally with its vegan brand Made with LUVE.
Prolupin produces plantbased products from the lupin bean as an alternative to soy, rice, almonds and coconut. The bean is similar in makeup to milk protein and as such is well suited for the production of milk product alternatives such as yogurt and ice cream. Here we are pleased to feature an end of year guest post from Prolupin about their successful product line, MADE WITH LUVE.
Milk alternatives from plant-based sources such as soy, rice, and almonds have been well-known for a long time. However, the use of sweet lupin beans is something relatively new to the market. Prolupin GmbH has been researching processing options for sweet lupin protein for many years, so that the positive properties of sweet lupins can be used in the best possible way.
