Abstract

In Southern Sweden the way potato starch is produced creates large amounts of by-product. This by-product consists of potato protein and non-edible compounds, which limits its use as food today. Improved uses of industrial by-product is of high interest for the future, and therefore finding a better use of the potato proteins from potato starch production is needed.Through this collaboration project between the researchers at SLU Alnarp and Lyckeby Starch AB it has been shown that potato proteins are suitable for making potato protein bioplastics. Also, the bioplastics made from these potato proteins have shown unusual strenght and stretchiness, properties that could be suitable for a multi-layered packaging bag for potato chips.
