Calorie reduction From May 2019

Calorie reduction and fibre enhancement

A new research project is aiming to:

This member-funded research project started this year and will run to the end of 2021. In 2019 the project will carry out a review of existing fibres and their functionality, conduct a horizon scan of new fibre sources, produce a prototype food product to demonstrate the role of fibre in calorie density reduction, and develop a method for specific dietary fibre determination.

Later in the project, research into consumer perception and acceptability of fibre enhanced products and a toolbox for mitigating undesired effects of fibre enhancement will be carried out.

The project team is currently looking for input from members on the research. Should it be focused and in depth, or provide a broader overview? Are you interested in certain model systems or fibre types?
