underPRESSURE project will scale-up a technological solution for producing “high” viscosity fat-based products addressing these consumer demands. Safe foods with lower fat content (fat reduction >30%) and reduced use of additives will be developed, maintaining or even improving their sensory characteristics and stability respect to full-fat conventional references. In order to assure a consumer driven project, consumers will be engaged from the creation to the validation of these food products, ensuring to meet their expectations.
