Web conference within the frame of the project "Development of innovative functional foods utilizing beneficial microorganisms"

Monday 26 July
17:00 - 18:45
🔗 Zoom

In the food industry, the production of products with probiotic microorganisms in sufficient concentration is still limited by the industrial production practices and storage conditions, which cause cell death before they are consumed. Our knowledge of the importance of the gut microbiome and the fast-paced lifestyle is pushing the industry towards new solutions for the production of novel products containing probiotic microorganisms. Immobilization of probiotics on natural supports improves cell viability during storage and digestion, resulting in enhanced survival during their way to the intestinal tract. In NOVoody’s project, we applied the immobilization technology in natural food ingredients, in order to increase cell viability, aiming at the production of new chocolate, cookies, and cereal products that contain probiotic strains for lowering cholesterol levels.

The actions carried out during the implementation of NOVoody’s project will be presented at the web conference, which will be held on Monday, July 26, 2021, at 17:00 p.m. The event is provided free of charge. To participate you need to pre-register at the link above.
