Rubisco Plant Protein

Rubisco is a plant protein which is stored in all green leaves. It is responsible for the process of photosynthesis and is considered to be the most abundant protein present on earth.



Rubisco plant protein is known for its high nutritional value. It contains high amounts of Essential Amino Acids, and is rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and micronutrients.

Rubisco proteins can be extracted from almost all green crops. At Rubisco Foods we extract them from water lentils, which is the term used for lemna or duckweed, and alfalfa (lucerne) cultivated under controlled and food-grade conditions.

Water lentil protein contains the highest level of Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s) and BCAA’s of all plant proteins. Its amino acid profile is comparable with animal proteins like whey and egg.

Therefore water lentil protein is a perfect ingredient to make your products more nutritious and boost the protein content.
All of our protein ingredients are Non GMO and allergen free.
