The global food market is constantly changing, from milder and more sustainable processing technologies to clean label products and plant-based ingredients and dairy alternatives. These trends create new challenges for producing safe, high-quality and taste ingredients and finished food. NIZO’s multidisciplinary capabilities can help you protect your products and brands. We ensure we have the most up-to-date knowledge about microbiological hygiene, as well as residues and chemical contaminants that may be found in milk, dairy products and dairy alternatives.
The use of alternative proteins in food is a major trend in the food industry as feeding the world and sustainability are major drivers for food ingredient and food producers. NIZO focuses on relevant aspects of technologies that enable this transition namely: protein technology, processing technologies, food grade fermentation technologies and the health aspects.
A broad range of chemical analyses with expert interpretation of results, offering insight and supporting decision making
Before you go to market, you need to be sure your ingredients, product formulation and processing are optimised. Understanding your new or modified product’s chemical composition and characteristics, and what that means in terms of performance, quality, shelf life, health and more, is important to give you the confidence that it will meet customer and consumer expectations and support your brand’s reputation.
NIZO’s broad analytic experience and advanced food chemical analyses offer you key insight into how your product will perform, whether in taste and texture, in nutritional composition, in shelf life, and much more. We partner with routine laboratories, while our own advanced analyses focus on innovative analysis and on-request in-depth interpretation and advice.
