3 Days Hands-on Training Workshop on Meat Analogues by Twin-Screw Extrusion Technology and Productization

Monday, 6th June to Wednesday, 8th June

Workshop date:

6, 7 and 8th June 2022
*Last date for registration is 3rd June 2022.
Limited seats: 15 Participants only



Workshop Overview:

This workshop will give the participants an understanding of how twin-screw extrusion technology can be used to transform plant proteins into meat analogues. Extrusion trials includes manufacture of both dry TVP and high moisture meat analogue (HMMA) by using a pilot plant twin screw extruder (Brabender TwinLab F-20/40). This workshop focuses on the concept of screw design, extruder setup, formulations, process optimization, product development etc. The exclusive workshop is designed for the participants to provide Hands-on experience on extruder and the ability to design various plant-based meats.
