Projecttitel: EXTREAMS – tEXturizing & Taste from side stREAMS
Projectnummer: LWV 20.107
Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedsel
MMIP:  D2 – De consument, duurzame en gezonde voeding, in een groene leefomgeving
Projectleider: Stefano Renzetti

EXTREAMS aims to achieve breakthroughs in valorising plant-based polysaccharides-rich side streams as natural, clean-label sugar replacers in food applications that are accepted by consumers. Sugars are difficult to replace due to their unique, multiple functionalities and cost-effectiveness. A reverse engineering approach towards functionalization is used by applying scientific know-how on physical and chemical properties of sugars and their effects on the perception of sweetness.
