Although useful and desirable, the indestructability of petroleum-based (synthtic) plastic is a growing concern because of its accumulation in the environment. The development of biodegradable plastics is needed as one alternative to help solve solid-waste related environmental problems. Plant proteins of oilseed origin represent a huge potential of biopolymers that are currently unexploited. Investigations concerning the processing of soy protein isolate and caseinate using twin-screw-extruder have been carried out. The processing conditions and the extrudates produced are described.
