Each month, some of the key challenges and issues facing the food and health industry today, are discussed by René 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 in vitro models for health benefit substantiation.
In this blog, which was also shown recently in Food Navigator, René Floris continues his exploration of the protein transition by looking at the food safety for plant-based foods. He interviewed Marjon Wells-Bennik, Principal Scientist Food Safety, who has over 20 years academic and industrial experience in food safety and microbiology.
