Vegetein produces flour, oil and fibres from flax, hemp and canola seeds to create a new, healthy and economically viable alternative to animal protein.
Vegetein helps to meet the increasing needs of the growing population by creating products with great functional properties and high nutritional value.
Flaxseed protein offers new opportunities for production. Since flax protein includes adhesives, it's well usable in gluten-free products in the baking industry.
Thanks to research and development in the US, Canada and Estonia, we have created a new refining technology that allows the proteins to extract faster and more energy-efficient compared to conventional technologies.
In recent years, our team has experimented a lot and produced many prototypes. As a result, we are able to deliver high-quality oil, powder and textured protein from linseed, hemp, and canola. We are actively looking for partners who are interested in manufacturing new products or increasing the protein content of the available products.
Currently, a production complex is being under construction near Jõgeva. A pilot plant is predicted to be finished in 2020, which is going to produce protein products with a capacity of 700 kg/h. We are hoping to open an Oil Extraction and Flour Plant (OEFP) production line of 2.4 tonnes of seed per hour in 2021.
