Each month, some of the key challenges and issues facing the food and health industry today, are discussed by RenĂ© Floris, Division Manager Food at NIZO, in a column in FoodNavigator. The areas of these key challenges are: the protein transition, smart processing, food safety and health issues. In the previous blog, we discussed the role of processing for protein functionality.

In this blog, which was also shown recently in Food Navigator, in vitro models and the search for health benefit substantiation are discussed by asking questions to Anita Hartog, Senior Scientist Nutrition and Health.
