Within the Sustainable Food Initiative (SFI), we identified four topics of interest and relevance for the protein transition to work on in a collaborative approach.
- Towards a global improvement of a healthy protein –> ingredient –> product
- Whole material approach – mild fractionation
- Whole chain approach
- Techno functional properties of plant & cellular proteins and use of predictive & automated screening approaches
These will be elaborated upon in more detail in the presentation.
A presentation by Petra Vossenberg, R&D – Fieldlab liaison officer at Sustainable Food Initiative. She is passionate about innovation and enjoys advancing new ideas, combining her technical background with an enthusiasm for sustainable collaborations and adding value to the world we live in.
