Online Workshop on High Moisture Extrusion (HME) by Twin-Screw Extruder Technology for Making Textured Plant-Based Meats

Wednesday, 20th October 10am

Jointly Conducted by Trans-Disciplinary University & Good Food Institute


Workshop date:

20th October 2021, Time: 10 am IST





Workshop Overview:

This workshop will give the participants an understanding of how twin-screw extrusion technology can be used to transform various ingredients into value added plant-based meat products. This e-workshop is designed to introduce participants to approaches that can be used to create products with desired textural quality using texturized vegetarian proteins. The choice of raw materials, processing parameters and productization for new product development and its influence on textural quality will be discussed through slides, videos and experimental data.
