PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking novel proposals to incorporate pea protein concentrate into low pH beveragesHumans 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.
PepsiCo posted this Technology CallSeeking revolutionary plant protein sourcesPepsiCo seeks to incorporate new plant proteins into their world-class foods and beverages. Consumers are increasingly selecting products that feature plant-based proteins: from rice milk to pasta made from chickpeas. Additionally, market demand also indicates a continued strong interest in protein-rich foods. An unfortunate side-effect of high levels of plant protein in food products is that various organoleptic properties, such as color, taste and texture, can be negatively impacted which, in turn, degrades consumer acceptance of those products. As such, PepsiCo is interested in innovative plant proteins that have undergone some level of concentration. Researchers & organizations who have exciting new plant protein concentrates with the potential for commercial-scale implementation on suitable timelines are strongly encouraged to respond.
Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking recognised scientists, research organisations, and suppliers of research tools working in the cannabinoid (and related compounds) global marketOur client has established various product brands serving the consumer lifestyle market and is investigating the development of a range of cannabinoid-based products for use in health and lifestyle applications. With an increasing number of products based on this group of compounds derived from the cannabis (hemp) plant, our client has a particular focus on those targeted for consumers directly (rather than for medicinal applications). Whilst CBD is a well-known cannabinoid, there are a host of additional compounds naturally present in the plant which are thought to contribute to an efficacious final product. Products commonly target different end effects such as pain/inflammation, relaxation, and promote sensory enjoyment, but claims are often based on anecdotal evidence and lacking established scientific knowledge or relevant data sets to support the product’s effective use. Consumers are beginning to question the validity of such product claims, and companies such as our client seek the fundamental science knowledge to support their future product development initiatives and claims. The client is continually seeking to ensure their products are based on established science, and therefore wishes to identify and engage with recognised scientists, research organisations, and suppliers of research tools working in the cannabinoid (and related compounds) global market. The aim is to identify potential partners able to inform and assist in building their fundamental knowledge in this area and provide a network of experts to work with in supporting their ongoing product development activities.
Covid-19 Innovation Challenges by Innoget posted this Technology CallSeeking Collaborators for COVID-19 Response (By AireHealth)AireHealth is ready to enter the ring and help where we can in support of our national effort to stem the impacts of the novel CoronaVirus. We’d like to see our FDA cleared nebulizer make an impact, particularly for the patients we already serve - those with chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD. We’re enhancing our production and distribution strategies to include delivery of COVIDCare Kits that package a 7-day disposable supply for our nebulizer. We are also working on a retooled version of our AireHealth mobile app to track COVID-19 symptoms and communicate status to caregivers and physicians as required.
