  • Innovation in dairy products

    Work carried out by the Joint Research Unit for Food Process Engineering (GENIAL) in the context of a CIFRE thesis project has highlighted the mechanisms that govern the structuring of a dairy product enriched with a polysaccharide. These findings open the way towards the controlled design of new textures while at the same time enabling a review of manufacturing processes.
