Organisation Profile

We characterize polysaccharides, especially those obtained as side streams from various bioprocesses, in food and food contact materials. We are interested in the behavior of polysaccharides in dispersed systems: their gelation and formulation into aerogels, emulsifying properties, and capacity to inhibit lipid oxidation.
