Researches on the influence of certain sources of protein in food and the degree of acceptability of consumers

2019-01-20

Contract:

ing authority: Ministry of Research and Innovation

Project completion period: 11.02.2019-2022

Buget: 2,000,000 lei

The overall objective of the project is to identify and analyze cost-effective, efficient and innovative sources of protein in order to develop foods – as protein sources, with a positive impact on human health, the environment and biodiversity. Different sources of protein (plant and animal) will be analyzed on the quantity and quality of proteins through a multidisciplinary approach that will include physico-chemical, rheological, food technologies for practical applications, sensory and textural evaluation, volatile odor composition, consumers’ preference regarding the obtained products

Specific objectives:

  • Study on the consumption trends of protein/protein rich foods at national/European/global level
  • Identification, characterization (sensory, physico-chemical and microbiological, functional, rheological) of sources of proteins of plant and animal origin
  • In vitro and in vivo tests to evaluate the effect of protein source products
  • Development of food products - protein sources.
