Within the frame of a European research project LIBBIO, DIL(German Institute of Food Technologies) will organize a workshop dedicated to plant-based proteins, especially lupin. The demand for vegetarian and especially vegan proteins in a wide range of food applications still increases as also reflected in the variety of product innovations. The successful application of these proteins requires a better understanding of their technological functionality to provide the consumer with the usual and expected product quality. Therefore, apart from sources for alternative proteins the workshop will focus on their applications in various products with the corresponding for protein functionality requirements.
Several speakers from research, industry and administration will talk about processing and new developments in plant proteins. Additionally, floor space for small booths to show products and equipment is available for interested companies and institutions.
