Formulation and processing of new food products
Addressing consumer needs through healthy products
We address food-related health needs through the research and development of new nutritionally-balanced formulations (food and/or nutritional supplements) based on nutritional requirements, as well as the application of new ingredients with an impact on health which can be declared on the label in compliance with EU regulations.
We improve food using new technologies which cause lower impact on nutritional properties and molecules of health interest which are naturally present in food.
Convenience, sustainability and pleasure
Innovating with products to suit consumers’ usage needs, consumption and emotions
An AZTI inter-disciplinary group is working to innovate in new products that enable consumers to personalise their diets, to cover specific nutritional requirements and preferences and awareness of a healthy lifestyle.
We develop new products aimed at meeting market demands, such as convenience, comfort, quality, ethics and environmental awareness, focusing on the consumer and adapting them to consumer needs (well-being, sports, consumption time, etc.).
We innovate in products with the appropriate formulations and portions, improved sensory properties, textures, colours, flavours, use applications, and we also work from the gastronomic point of view.
The orientation of the products we develop is adapted to industrial production, and therefore we take into account factors such as sustainability, eco-design and orientation to the sales channel and market.
