The forthcoming Food Innovation Gateways event will showcase some of the latest techniques for Food Biotransformation. Food Biotransformation uses natural biological processes to develop/modify/augment specific characteristics within a food to enhance; functionality, flavour, colour, texture, shelf life or health. As an added advantage such processes are seen as more consumer and legislation friendly, and they can add value by utilising food waste streams.

A panel of leading industry and academic experts will discuss:

  • The future application of biotransformation systems for the food industry
  • Flavour generation by microbes and enzymes
  • Alcohol fermentation with yeast
  • The biotransformation of waste streams
  • Biotransformation within food-for-health
