Since there is currently no cure for food allergy, avoidance of foods containing the proteins that trigger the responses (i.e. allergens) is the only method to prevent life-threatening allergic reactions. Most foods are consumed after being processed and the various processing technologies used may alter the allergenic properties of the food. Customers´ demand for more choices of healthier foods have prompted the industry to search for alternative novel processing technologies, which might enhance the functional and nutritional quality, microbiological safety or digestibility of the final food products.

 

The aim of this project is to gain knowledge on novel food processing technologies and their applications in food industry, and on the effect of these technologies on the allergenicity of the food products.

 

Knowledge, skills and competences to be acquired by the end of the special course (Learning objectives):

The student will, by the end of the course, be able to:

·         Perform literature searches.

·         Acquire general knowledge on food processing and identify novel processes.

·         Acquire general knowledge on allergy.

·         Plan and write a small review of a limited scientific area.
