Workshop Location: Agri-Food Innovation Centre, 2335 Schuyler Street, Saskatoon, SK CANADA
The evolution of plant-based protein foods available in the market has occurred in part due to consumer expectations and awareness and advancements in food processing technologies. As consumers balance environmentally sustainable food choices with nutrition and health outcomes, innovations in plant-based food manufacturing is becoming increasingly important. This workshop will focus on diversity of plant-based protein applications produced using twin-screw extrusion.
