Qaztech Ventures posted this Technology CallSeeking technology for controlling weeds in potato fields- The solution should not depress crop plants in the crop rotation. - The solution can include both mechanical processing of potato row spacing and the use of herbicides that effectively combat weeds common in the fields. - Should work on potatoes grown under irrigation.
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.
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.
