For ryegrass and red clover juice, this loading resulted in 10–25% increase in precipitated protein compared to the classical precipitation by heat treatment or acidification.

We conclude that lignosulfonate-assisted precipitation holds potential for improving the protein yield in biorefining of green biomass.
