To date, minimally processed plant -proteins are hampered as alternatives to animal -proteins due to the presence of usually called “antinutritional factors” (ANFs), decreasing their nutritional value. Enzyme technology can be used to reduce the ANFs in minimally processed plant proteins. In addition, reduction of ANFs using enzymes will allow valorization of side streams from plant material processing for an increased sustainability of these crops. It is the purpose of this work to produce minimally processed plant beverages using enzyme solutions for increased nutritional quality and sensory characteristics of the food.
Our Nutritious Protein
Consumer desire for protein-rich foods and beverages is driving growth and innovation in protein ingredients.The population growth together with the changes in the food consumption patterns away from animal -derived proteins, further increases the demand for new plant -proteins.
Increasing nutritional value (bio-stimulated) of selected performant tomato varieties to be cultivated in areas with temperate climate
The major objectives are to look for, evaluate and to select processing tomato cultivars best adapted to RIS northern countries.
The aim of this project is to test the effects of innovative ingredients (insect larvae) in poultry feeding to allow sustainable production, to improve animal welfare and to potentially meet the consumer demand for healthier, more natural and bettertasting products.
CleanFruit - Standardisation of innovative pest control strategies to produce zero residue fruit for baby food and other fruit produce
Fruit crop protection is heavily dependent on chemical pesticides but consumers and fruit processors are increasingly interested in residue-free fruit.
