The objectives of the Technology and Processes Unit are to develop technologies to obtain functional ingredients, develop nutritional complements, identify and characterize bioactive and techno-functional compounds, and improve the nutritional properties of raw materials of vegetal origin to be used by the food production industry.
As well as the research project that we work on, we conduct parallel research on:
- Characterization of the techno-functional properties of mucilage and linseed proteins and development of the processes for obtaining them.
- Evaluation of lupine as a source of ingredients with techno-functional properties.
- Characterization of functional and bioactive compounds of microalgae and the development of technologies for their extraction.
Researchers from the Chemical Engineering Department of the Universidad de La Frontera and professionals from CGNA make up this research unit.
