    Plasma proteins are the perfect heat setting proteins to be used in cooked meat products. Plasma does not have any functionality when it is unheated, but the moment when it is heated, plasma proteins set and firm into a stable mass. This is a non reversible process, meaning that after cooking and cooling down, the plasma keeps its firmness. Therfore, plasma is the ideal product to use in cooked hams, sausages and canned meat products where waterbinding and firmness of texture are important. Plasma has a waterbinding up to 1:15 and has good emulsification in heated solutions (1:10:10). 100% natural from bovine or porcine origin. Hydroxyproline free.

  • Application:

    Plasma is available in bovine and porcine origin, in 3 forms, a 70% protein content powder, a 80% protein content powder and a concentrated liquid (frozen) of 17% protein content. Applications perfectly suited for plasma are cooked meat products in general as it is a heat setting protein. Examples of such are whole muscled and reformed hams, frankfurter sausages, canned hams and bologna's.

    Plasma is perfectly soluble and therefore finds perect use for injection and tumbling. It does not affect brine viscosity. A natural protein, maybe even the closest relatable to meat. Dosage of plasma powder lays around max. 1-1,5%, without noticing any plasma flavor.

    QBind Pork PP70P - Evidence

    At the production of cooked ham and shoulders the application of plasma proteins offers benefits because of the excellent functional properties, like high solubility, and excellent gelling and water binding at heating. These properties result in the following effects in ham products:

    Figure 1 (Left): Influence of heating temperature on gel strength

    Factor: temperature and gelling

    • relatively strong gelling of plasma protein at lower temperatures
    • plasma protein forms a stronger gel than other proteins

    Figure 2 (Right): Influence of pH on gel strength after heating

    Factor: pH and gel strength

    • different behavior of proteins
    • stronger plasma protein gel at higher pH
