Hands-on workshops by industry specialists
Industry specialists train delegates about the properties, functionalities, and applications of proteins. All delegates are divided into smaller groups and these groups get a 30-minute introduction, followed by the chance to see, touch, feel, smell and taste each protein source, and to try finished foods made with the proteins. Each part of the program is reviewed with the industry expert and the other group members. This practical session assists in understanding the reasons for use and points of difference of each protein.
