ABSTRACT THE effect of post harvest heating on the recovery of and composition of alfalfa juice protein was evaluated. All materials were evaluated using a flotation system, a belt filtration system, and a combination belt-flotation system. Heating of the alfalfa resulted in deterioration of the crop material for juice protein pro-duction. Extractable solids in the juice decreased, pro-tein recovery decreased, and protein moisture increased. Nitrogen distribution in the recovered protein was also altered.
