DIL joins European Pleasure Project

Reduction of salt, fat ans sugar is emphasized

PLEASURE is a European project with in total 16 research institutions and enterprises. The idea is to identify and further develop opportunities of processing technologies which:

-    allow the reduction of salt, unwanted fat, and sugar
-    avoid or at least reduce the use of replacers like phosphates, gums   and                   sweeteners
-    achieve an optimized sensorial perception of the products

The DIL will be responsible for one out of a total of nine work packages. In this context, DIL will focus on meat products. The goal is to achieve an overall reduction of 15 to 30% of salt in meat products and the replacement of animal fats by plant oils. In order to realize this reduction, combined approaches will be followed.
