The method includes incorporating the separated purified proteinous material in at least one product. The solvent comprises at least one of water and aqueous solutions. The pH of the solvent during at least part of the extraction differs from pI by at least about 0.2 pH units, wherein pI is the isoelectric point of the protein. A food comprising a protein-containing substance derived from a starting material having protein and phytate, the food comprising at least about 70 percent of the protein of the starting material and less than about 60 percent of the phytate of the starting material is also disclosed.
