About Physics and Physical Chemistry of Foods

We integrate physics, meso-structure design and development, and application-driven research, to enable innovations more effectively.

We aim to:

  • deliver fundamental knowledge, new mesostructures, and application concepts, for academic partners, industry and society;
  • to educate students to apply such integration in their future careers.
Our focus is on the mesoscale in relation to the molecular and macroscopic scale.

Application areas refer to:

  • function (texture, taste, smell, colour, nutrient delivery);
  • context (processing, transport, storage, consumption, digestion);
  • requirements (sustainability, safety, ingredient availability, reasonable cost).
