Event description

Meat is characterized by hierarchical fibrous structures, which plant-based meat developers try to mimic with plant proteins. To stimulate further developments in the structure and juiciness of plant-based meat, it is important to create products with ingredients other than wheat, soy, or pea. Join Dr. Atze Jan van der Goot, Professor of Sustainable Protein Technology at Wageningen University & Research, for an overview of ingredient requirements for application in meat analogs. Dr. van der Goot will highlight the potential of using press cakes from sunflower and rapeseed.
