Development and human validation of new healthier food products using low-cost functional ingredients
Ziel: FOFIND will develop new affordable daily consumed functional food (biscuits, breads and juices) and nutritional supplements, using innovative low cost functional ingredients derived from milk and potato fibre. These new products will be directed to the general population with specific nutritional needs that control the symptoms of hypertension, hypercholesterol, osteoporosis, anemia, and digestive problems. The main results of FOFIND will be among others (1) Functional ingredients derived from milk by-products incorporated in beverages with demonstrated activity (Lowpept plus phytosterols, CPPs plus calcium, iron and selenium salts,); FOFIND project will support SMEs breaking through these barriers, by means of the development of new added-value functional food and nutritional supplements to be implemented in a short term, which will allow SMEs to increase their competitiveness and will lead them to achieve new market niches and new consumer profiles. FOFIND will develop new functional ingredients and food aimed to improve the most prevalent nutritional needs in EU, providing added value to the final products and, ultimately, increasing the return of investment of food producer SMEs.
