The food industry is actively seeking new food formulations that can replace and mimic animal-based products due to their clear environmental and sustainability issues. This trend is combined with the desire to improve the nutritional values of food products with the objective of enhancing the population’s health and well-being. These objectives have led to increased interest in food architecture design and development, aiming to mimic traditional products with healthier, more sustainable options.
Join us for our next Science of Alt Protein seminar where Dr. Maya Davidovich-Pinhas, Associate Professor at Technion, will discuss the use of various molecular assemblies, across multiple length scales, to improve the nutritional value and sustainability of food by replacing harmful ingredients, such as saturated fat, while maintaining a positive consumer experience and desirable textural attributes.
Join us after this event
After the seminar, we encourage you to join our optional networking event for alternative protein enthusiasts! You can talk about your research, your company, any challenges you’re facing in your work, or your reflections on the webinar. The networking session starts at 2:15pm EDT and requires a separate registration. We hope to see you there!
Meet the speaker
Dr. Maya Davidovich-Pinhas
Dr. Maya Davidovich-Pinhas is an Associate Professor at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology where she has headed the lipid and soft matter laboratory in the department of Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Engineering since 2015. The research done in her lab combines material science and engineering concepts toward the development of new soft matter systems for biotechnology and food applications. More specifically, her research focuses on the structure-property-function relation of soft matter systems combining lipid and water phases using X-ray diffraction, microscopy, thermal, rheology, and texture analyses. Dr. Davidovich-Pinhas earned her B.Sc. in Biochemical Engineering and her M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Technion, Israel. Her post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Guelph concentrated on oil-based gels, termed oleogels.
