“ALIPROT- Research and Development of protean ingredients and foods with healthy and technological features targeting specific population groups”
Summary and objectives:
The main objective of this project is to research technological and healthy features of different protein sources (dairy, meat, vegetables and from algae) as well as their applicability in different food matrices. Such research will aim to establish methodologies for the design and development of innovative ingredients and new healthy foods with high protein content, tailored to the nutritional and sensory requirements of population groups with greater muscle and vascular wear, such as the senior population (given the relation between loss of muscle mass and aging) and athletes (with a very active muscle metabolism).
The ALIPROT Project is promoted by a consortium of four companies, of which 2 are large companies (Delaviuda Alimentación and Coren) and 2 are SMEs (Queizuar and AlgaEnergy). The project is coordinated by the company Delaviuda Alimentación.
The project, called “ALIPROT – Research and Development of protean ingredients and foods with healthy and technological features targeting specific population groups” and with file number ITC-20151395, has been subsidized by the CDTI (Center of Industrial and Technological Development), supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, within the Program FEDER Innterconecta, in the call 2015.
