Truffles are an expensive mushroom due to their distinctive taste and aroma. In Australia, the truffle industry relies on one species, which has a limited three-month season. The aim of this project is to assess two new truffle species for Australian conditions, including inoculation and cultivation techniques, environmental conditions (e.g., climate, growing medium, water), and suitable host trees (e.g., Pinus species).
The project is developing a fundamental understanding of the relationship between process parameters influencing the properties of wheat grains in grain dryers during the manufacturing process of Weetbix.
Analytical Assessment of Food Quality and Processing Systems, Tracing, Biochemistry and Nutritional Properties of Foods
This project concerns the validation of claims on the levels of multiple phytochemicals in a range of foods and food products, and variations through the production to consumer pipelines.
The specific protein content of dairy and plant-based milks has a strong influence on their taste, mouthfeel, and health and nutritional properties. This commercial in-confidence project is exploring new healthy protein opportunities for expanding Sanitarium’s range of non-dairy, plant-based beverages. It is expected that this initial proof of concept project will lead to small-scale protein production.
This project is applying chemical fingerprinting technology based on a combination of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and Rapid Evaporative Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (REIMS) together with chemometric data analysis to better understand the natural chemical compounds in various Australian artichokes.
The project aims to improve the properties of a range of products, including the functionality of Barista plant-based milk (Alternative Dairy Company), by developing a comprehensive understanding of the effects of processing parameters on the desired product properties.
Towards scaling up the production of functional Mg-based particles via spray-drying for nutraceutical applications
The project is supporting the establishment of a large scale production of high purity Mg-based particles in NSW and WA, sourced from the waste bitterns of solar salt operations in Karratha, and is developing a new strategy in synthesising novel mesoporous Mg-based particles via spray drying.
FoodSwitch Connect is a web-based service that provides listings of vendors and their menu items. The vendors’ foods are being profiled and rated for their healthiness using FoodSwitch’s science-based algorithms, which is providing procurement teams the means to identify and source healthier foods for workplace catering
This scoping project involves high-level analysis of Australian food manufacturing facility needs, opportunities and challenges. It reviews current global best practice in advanced food manufacturing; considers current and intended Australian processes and facilities; and provides scoping for future CRC manufacturing research.
