Hiperbaric participates in HST Food Train project

hstHST FoodTrain is a multi-site Marie Curie initial training network (ITN) for early-stage (ESR) and experienced (ER) researchers, funded by the European Commission under the FP7-People Programme and has started on January 1, 2011. The objective of HST FoodTrain is to train multi-disciplinary experts with multisectoral (from academia to private sector) experience on and insight in the impact of (novel) food processing on the composition and (micro)structure of fruit- and vegetable-based food products, and the relationship between those properties and product functionality such as texture/rheology, flavor and nutrient bio-accessibility. The consortium of HST FoodTrain consists of two universities (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium and University of Reading, UK), a private research institute (DIL, Germany), two large companies (Coca-Cola Services, Belgium and Unilever R&D Vlaardingen, The Netherlands) and an SME (Hiperbaric, Spain).
