Hydrodynamic cavitation allows us to explore the possibilities of adding value to a pre-processed by product by reusing the waste for new purposes. Using this technology we are able to explore new avenues to ensure waste is minimized and use of the product is maximized.

TECHNOLOGY

Using our patented Hydrodynamic Cavitation Reactor surrounded by proprietary control and measurement systems, Mera Food has commercialized a series of vegetable protein processing systems. These systems take whole grains and pulses and create full fibre protein rich food ingredients or beverages requiring no chemical additives and producing zero waste.

Controlled cavitation uses water and energy to create microscopic explosions that disintegrate plant material, which creates heat internally. This allows us to precisely cook the feed stock to ensure the product is digestible and any unwanted flavors are eliminated without denaturing the product in any form. All nutrients remain intact while eliminating the digestive trypsin inhibitors.

We design, fabricate and commission modular vegetable protein processing systems that can be containerized or integrated within customer facilities producing from 5,000 to 50,000 litres per day. The systems are fully automated, self-cleaning and can be monitored remotely using Mera’s proprietary data management and control systems. Protein and fat concentrations are monitored and can be adjusted during production to meet the exact requirements of the end user.

PRODUCT RANGE

LIQUID PRODUCTS

Mera’s patented two stage process provides flexibility to convert a variety of plant-based protein to a finished consumable product. The process uses the entire bean in order to maintain full fibre, while the cooking process creates a neutral flavor and odor with a nutritional profile similar to cow’s milk. The resulting product is lactose free with no preservatives and additives, with flavours and nutrients able to be tailored to customer and market specifications.

Solid Products

SOLID PRODUCTS

Mera has recently began development of a solid paste-like slurry that is used to make protein bars, cookies, and dips while also being an effective meat extender. Using a similar process that is used to make our liquid products, it also maintains full fibre and is very rich in nutrients, while being odorless and having a neutral taste.
