Seeking novel proposals to incorporate pea protein concentrate into low pH beverages
Humans have cultivated and eaten peas (Pisum sativum) for millennia. Modern consumers are looking to the seed as a promising protein source – it is rich in proteins which can be isolated to make pea protein concentrates (PPC). While PPC are available in many forms and products, little or no research has been done to understand its behavior in low pH solution or model systems. As a result, food producers have encountered difficulties incorporating PPC into acidic products, such as fruit juices. The goal of this project is to identify pea protein concentrates that are suitable for usage in low pH systems or to find technologies capable of processing PPC so that they may be used in low pH environments.
Seeking revolutionary plant protein sources
The food and beverage market currently has significant growing demand for protein rich or protein enriched products. The trend is clearly demonstrated in the recent success of Greek style yogurt and the growing demand plant-based food and beverages. The challenge with protein additions at levels at which claims can be made is that the protein adversely impacts the texture/mouth feel, taste, color, of the product. Therefore, consumer perceptions of the product suffer. The goal is to locate novel new proteins that do not suffer from these drawbacks and/or unique extraction methods to mitigate/minimize their magnitude. Goal is to get to a claimable content of protein relevant to each category.
Seeking moisture barrier for paper substrate - Flexible Packaging
We have been working on paper base structures as a potential option for our flexible food packaging to help with our sustainability goals of having 100% RCB compliance for our packages by 2030. While flexible package is a very sustainable option from a material use point of view, the multi-layer multi-material structures are not conducive for recycling and mostly end up in the landfill or as litter. Paper helps us with the end of life issues and can be recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. Maintaining packaging performance such as shelf stability, oxygen and moisture barrier are a must on this project. Oxygen barrier is not a problem with current technologies available but achieving the very high moisture barrier required for packaging dry foods has been a challenge. We understand that new technologies will be needed to achieve the high moisture barrier requirements (< 0.3 g/m2/day under Tropical conditions). Also, it is important to maintain this barrier under forming conditions in the VFFS process of bag-making. We are looking for novel solutions that can be added to the paper, if possible, as a high functional coating applied through flexographic or rotogravure process and/or a skin layer with high functionality that can anchor metal (metallization). The functional layer/coating must be compliant with paper recycling process and biodegradable/compostable.
Potentiometric sensors for the selective and direct detection of hydrogen peroxide
The present technology belongs to the medical field: by means of potentiometric sensors it is possible to detect the presence of hydrogen peroxide in clinical samples. This fact allows the development of devices for measuring hydrogen peroxide, preferably in a single undiluted whole blood drop out of the clinical laboratory.
DRooTES: Double Rooted Trailing Edge Serrations for quiet blades
Aerofoil blade designs with double rooted serrations that reduce trailing edge noise to the maximum through destructive interference. They can be attached to existing blades so are particularly suitable for retrofitting to larger blades, such as wind turbines. They are however applicable to a wide range of blades moving in air and water, for example turbines, fans, rotary wings and fixed wings. The scale of application ranges from small drones (small blades operating at high speeds) to large wind turbines (large blades operating at slower speeds).
Real Time Water Quality Monitoring Technology
We have developed a new device to improve water quality monitoring. Using BioElectrochemical System (BES) technology, It has the potential to reduce the discharge of pollutants from treatment facilities.
