It takes more than just craftsmanship to make the next generation of well-tasting, stable plant-based food products with a pleasant texture on industrial scale. Especially now that the demand for new products and innovative production methods is increasing rapidly. With these and other questions, the industry comes to NIZO, for more than 70 years the expertise centre for dairy and other food products. Plant proteins and plant-based foods are booming at NIZO! Every day we work on technologically and scientifically challenging subjects for our customers, delivering solutions that work in practice.
If you are just as fascinated about that as we are, why not join our team of experts as our new
With relevant expertise on plant proteins from source to customer products
Since our customers have great interest in developing more sustainable food products and corresponding ingredients you will be involved in a large variety of challenges and research questions where plant proteins play an important role. You are comfortable with that because, as the protein transition is a crucial step towards a sustainable food system, you understand the fundamentals of protein behaviour and fundamentals behind the role they play in food products. Therefore, you can deliver the required solutions in this role.
Developing dairy mimics (plant-based products) is a rapidly growing area where you will be working in, as well as in developing meat replacers, plant protein ingredients and other products. Translating and using protein knowledge together with the other experts on plant proteins allows you to help our customers with their challenges towards developing more sustainable plant based products.
