Each month, 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 sensory experiences of plant proteins.
In this blog, which was also shown recently in Food Navigator, René Floris continues his exploration of the protein transition by looking at the use of computer modelling for optimising food production processes. Together with Kevin van Koerten, Project Manager and Processing Scientist at NIZO, he explores which kind of process steps can be modelled, and their benefits.
