Soy Protein Concentrate – SPC (NGMO)
In 2012 Caramuru Group investment over R$100 million in a new plant dedicated to the production of soy protein concentrate (SPC). The process does not use transgenic beans; rather, production is based on high protein content (over 60%) environmentally friendly soybeans. Main use of this SPC product include substitution of fish meal used in animal rations (swine, poultry, cattle and horse rations) as well as for human consumption.
Lecithin presents properties such as color, flavor and mainly its action as an emulsifier, which make it appropriate for use as a food ingredient used in chocolate, margarine, ice cream, biscuits, breads and pastas as well as “instant” foods, sauces and sweets and candies.
It is also used in dietetic products and some pharmaceuticals, thanks to its high nutrition value, and in cosmetics because of its natural, vegetable characteristics.
Caramuru produces lecithin at the Itumbiara, São Simão and Sorriso processing plants, in compliance with rigid standards of quality and advanced technological procedures. The Group is very concerned about the genetic purity of the non-transgenic soybeans. This focus guarantees that all lecithin production is highly credible and traceable along the entire production chain.
