Population growth has raised world meat consumption in recent years and this growth is expected to continue to increase in the future.
Insect-based foods have proven to be a very favorable alternative for large-scale protein production thanks to the fact that they require fewer resources and their waste is practically non-existent, that is why at Tech Transfer Agrifood we look for new products based on insects in different formats.
They are specifically looking for solutions that have been developed:
– “Semi-finished” products such as flour with a differential value with respect to vegetable proteins.
– Finished products (snack, drink, etc.) with or without a branding proposal.
Solutions not of interest
- Products that contain organoleptic attributes unpleasant for the consumer.
- Silver solutions from the need to apply EFSA accreditation through the NOVEL FOOD regulation.
