Behind PectCof

The idea behind PectCof is to transform coffee cherries, a side stream of the coffee production chain, into valuable food ingredients. PectCof technology uses a biorefinery concept with green chemistry (no use of solvents) and state of the art biotechnology (like membrane filtration) to do so. PectCof technology unlocks the potential of coffee pulp as a source of multiple food ingredients, at the same time detoxifying the side stream produced by the second most traded commodity in the world. The focus is on Dutch Gum as first market introduction, but side streams from the process include Food Grade water binding fibers, fruit sugars, caffein, antioxidants and the beautiful red color of the coffee cherry.
