Innovate with your production processes. Plant-based foods and products based on protein alternatives
There is a continuous evolution in the development of new processes for obtaining and adapting bioactive ingredients and compounds for use in foodstuffs. As plant-based foods and products based on alternative proteins enter the market, they are combined with the already considerable presence of functional foods. This trend promotes the development of efficient, safe and sustainable technologies such as the extraction, separation or recovery, concentration, purification and adaptation of a myriad of bioactive ingredients and compounds.
Foods are considered healthy if their ingredients are technologically and functionally suitable. These characteristics depend on how these ingredients are obtained and adapted to the food. Likewise, the environmental footprint of the final food is affected by the efficient use of resources and the pollution generated during the ingredients’ production process. Therefore, there is a demand for new processes that are not only more efficient but also more sustainable.
