Precision Fermentation: From Biotechnology to Sustainable Nutrition (21063)

Project: EU project

Project Details


In this project, we will design and optimise precision fermentation processes, as well as assess developed products to ensure they are suitable for mass production. Using the processes we develop, we will produce novel sweet proteins, which will give the sensory profile of sugar yet are much healthier than refined sugars and sweeteners as they are quickly digested by the body in the same way as other proteins.
