Partner in the following EIT Food projects
Tasty Texture: Tailored fibre/protein-rich vegetarian Health Power food & novel extrusion technology platform
We aim to enlarge plant-based food offerings beyond meat analogues by a novel process combination for structuring protein and fibres obtained also from side-stream materials to develop a range of consumer valued tasty, healthier and sustainably processed alternatives to the currently popular starch based, energy dense products
Low-Energy Electron Beam (LEEB) to inactivate viruses and microorganisms on heat sensitive raw materials without affecting quality
However, the safety of these food ingredients can be an issue as they are vector carriers for pathogenic bacteria and viruses
This activity will propose a framework, consult with partners, and run five pilot programmes to provide examples of development for different constituents: graduates, established employees (technical and managerial), top talent, and entrepreneurs
