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
Once you have applied for FAN, you will go through a rigorous selection process where you will be judged by a series of experts including successful entrepreneurs, investors and experts from the agriculture and food industries
Professional development for a sustainable food system In a world of rapid environmental change, resource depletion, economic instability and social inequality, it is clear that a more sustainable future requires innovations on all levels of society and the economy
Rice is a primary carbohydrate staple, but is high in carcinogen inorganic arsenic (Asi) & soluble starch, the former is a chronic carcinogen & the latter is a causative agent for obesity & diabetes in high rice consumers
SuReBar: Integrating innovative sugar and fibre technologies to produce clean label sugar reduced products, demonstrated through cereal bars
Cereal bars are considered by many consumers to be a healthy snacking alternative, but in reality they often contain between 13% and 40 % sugar
EIT Food's Professional Development Framework - Advanced aims to provide a key resource for the food sector by creating an integrated approach to develop a skilled, innovative workforce
