Join us on 28 - 30 November 2017 to be part of the leading global meeting place for food and beverage innovation. The Dutch research institutes Triskelion, Wageningen Food & Biobased Research (part of Wageningen University & Research) and TNO are joining the show together showcasing and demonstrating their innovative solutions in the area of “Research for healthy life”. Visit us at stand #08.0F51 or make an appointment upfront.
3D food printing: TNO and Wageningen Food & Biobased Research will expose their unique 3D food printing technologies. During the show a full operational 3D food printer will demonstrate how we can help you to create new food products with unique quality aspects that can be fully personalised. It can make tangible contributions to people’s health and sustainable production in the future. TNO and Wageningen Food & Biobased Research combine their expertise in 3D printing technology with food science to create ultra-modern technology for the production of new foods.
Personalised Nutrition & Health: Furthermore, an initiative of TNO and Wageningen Food & Biobased Research regarding Personalised Nutrition & Health will be showcased. The aim of this consortium project is researching the technology and knowledge needed to make personalised food and health advice possible on a large scale. Consumers would then be able to decide for themselves what is healthy for them, while companies can add new value and help society to become a little healthier. This pre-competitive public private consortium is unique in combining different scientific expertise and using real world field labs. During the pre-event summit, Nard Clabbers will present this consortium project that investigates technical and social innovations to enable personalized nutrition through consumer empowerment.
TIM model: TRISKELION will show their newest version of the world famous TIM models which simulates the gastro-intestinal tract. In current nutritional research, there is a growing need for reliable in vitro predictive tools, as alternative to animal studies, to reduce the failure rate of the expensive and time-consuming human studies. The TIM systems contribute to an efficient product development by selecting the most promising candidate aimed for selected consumer populations (adult, children, elderly and healthy or disease). As one of many applications Triskelion will highlight how to determine protein digestion (DIAAAS) with the TIM model. Furthermore Triskelion will launch its newly developed and validated breakthrough quantitative LC-MS method for the species-specific determination of gelatin. The so-called TrustGelTM method reliably detects porcine and bovine constituents in gelatin with a high sensitivity.
