Dairy Alternative Drinks & YoGhurt based on rapeseed ingredients (DADYGo)

Dairy Alternative Drinks & YoGhurt based on rapeseed ingredients (DADYGo)

Using rapeseed protein to produce dairy alternatives

DADYGo aims to transform rapeseed protein ingredients into high quality, tasty, and healthy dairy alternative products. 

Plant proteins are becoming increasingly popular with many consumers opting for dairy alternatives either for health reasons, animal welfare concerns or to reduce their environmental impact. However, the choice of suitable protein ingredients is quite limited and majorly concentrated on those from pea, soy and cereal origins. This has resulted in limited functionality and nutritional values, as well as issues with flavour still hindering a broad consumer acceptance of plant protein rich foods.   

The DADYGo project will develop non-fermented dairy alternative drinks and fermented yoghurt alternative products from rapeseed protein ingredients which have a texture, appearance and flavour which is acceptable to consumers. Product development will be accompanied by consumer studies, which will help to generate the desired properties.

Plant-based foods are growing beyond vegan and vegetarians due to the emerging segment of the flexitarians, who seek to reduce animal protein consumption in their daily diet. Most product developments focus on meat or milk analogues.

Digital Twin Management

Food safety is one of the major concerns in food production. Improving tracking & tracing especially for the management of food safety events can lead to a faster reaction time and elimination of potentially hazardous products, thus prevention of food borne illnesses and loss of lives.
