Contract:

ing authority: Ministry of Research and Innovation

Project completion period: 11.02.2019-2022

Buget: 1,850,000 lei

The objective of the project: analysis of different gluten-free raw material resources and optimal formulations for the development of nutritionally, functionally and sensory-enhanced gluten-free products. The research is based on rheological, nutritional, technological and sensory aspects. The project deal with a detailed analysis of the different categories of gluten-free flours until obtaining gluten-free products (bread, pasta, extrudates) and studying their quality. The results on a series of raw materials and the diversification of the gluten-free products are intended to specialists in the food sector, to people with gluten intolerance, as well as for those interested in personalized nutrition.

Specific objectives:

  • identifying the gluten-free raw materials resources and characterizing them from rheological, thermal and nutritional point of view;
  • development and nutritional and sensory characterization of gluten-free products such as bread, pasta and extrudates;
  • establishing and optimizing the technological process for making gluten-free bread;
  • identifying the most appropriate technological solutions regarding the extrusion technique in gluten-free products development.
