June 23 – Track II – Research & Innovation in the Plant Protein Value Chain
Research Road Maps Sustainable & Clean Label Foods, and Health & Nutrition
Plant-based foods, ingredients, and packaging should be based on sustainable processing technology in view of the sustainable development goals for climate (energy, water, emission, waste, soil health), and health & nutrition. Consumers also demand clean labels, which is becoming another important industry and societal driver.
The growing interest in plant-based foods and proteins gives rise to a lot of new questions on bio-availability, bio-activity, new ingredients, processing technologies, and how foods are formulated. The aim of this Track is to create the best exchange of know-how, to develop new networks, and to grow new collaborations in the areas of:
– Pulse Value Chain
– Human Nutrition
Key questions are:
– Which improvements can be made to the pulse value chain to make it more sustainable and also to create clean label foods?
– What is the current “state-of-the-industry” in terms of health & nutrition?
– How does the plant-based foods & nutrition road map 2025 look like?
Great global science leaders from Manitoba University, Saskatchewan University, University of Alberta, Maastricht University, and Wageningen University, and the Carbohydrate Competence Centre support this Summit program.
Research Leaders from Universities, Institutes, Food & Food Ingredient companies.
