DESCRIPTION

The food system is facing important challenges in the near future. Agriculture, processing industry and distribution need new solutions to overcome the limitations of traditional technologies in Food sector. Nanotechnology will play a role in providing innovative solutions for feeding a growing population, extract data from the food chain and personalize foods. Food Unit is focused on the development of different solutions using nanotechnologies for food quality, safety, authenticity and processing.

RESEARCH GROUPS

The group aims to develop sensors, and devices for control and monitoring food risk (pathogens, allergens) and authenticity based on a combination of Molecular Biology and Microfluidic technologies

View Food Quality and Safety Group

The group works in developing edible, active and intelligent food packaging as well as in improving the functionality of bioactive food ingredients by using innovative encapsulation technologies. Food grade biopolymers are structured at the nanoscale to obtain printable ingredients that provide new food properties, textures, and sensations
