Course Meat analogues technology and science

To address sustainability challenges, helping consumers reduce their meat consumption is essential. One successful approach is the development of meat analogues, products that mimic meat and can replace it on our plates. However, replicating all the characteristics of meat in these products is a complex task.

This course provides insights into the science of creating appealing meat analogues, enabling the efficient development of new products with meat-like properties.
