FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Minneapolis, MN – April 20, 2015 – Medallion Labs will be turning the protein sector of the food industry on its head with the launch of a new In Vitro Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) method, a new service that Accurately measures the Protein Quality of alternative proteins. When our Animal-Safe Accurate Protein Quality (ASAP) method becomes available this summer, protein ingredient suppliers and buyers will have a great resource to determine the quality of protein ingredients in finished product. Medallion Labs’ patented ASAP PDCAAS method is revolutionary. We have developed a way to eliminate the need to use and sacrifice rats in a feeding study. With this method, we have also reduced the cost and turnaround time, while maintaining great accuracy and correlation to in vivo results. This tool will be of great service to food scientists and developers, helping them • compare protein ingredients • estimate final product protein claims • check protein formulations • understand processing effects of protein in finished products Our carefully crafted, patented method is Animal-Safe – no longer uses and sacrifices rats for a feeding study; Affordable - $1500/sample; and Timely – takes less than 15 business days for results.
Join us! We will be featuring this new service at the Institute of Food Technology’s annual meeting. Come see our Technical Manager and Method Developer, David W. Plank share his development of this technology in the New Products and Technologies Showcase. Details are at www.ift.org.
