Innovation

ISP - Isolation and Application of Plant-based Ice Structuring Proteins in Frozen Foods

Temperature fluctuations during storage of frozen foods result in big chunks of ice causing major quality defects of the product. A controlled deceleration of recrystallization processes can be achieved by specific ice structuring proteins (ISP). So far, the only food-grade available ISP are based on animal or GMO sources.
