Sustainable utilization of Latvian agricultural resources in development of innovative technologies and functional food products with heightened nutritional value
The leading partner of the project “Sustainable utilization of Latvian agricultural resources in development of innovative technologies and functional food products with heightened nutritional value”: “RicBerry”, Ltd., involved partners: - Latvian University of Agriculture (LUA), - A/h “Strēlnieki”, -A/h “Kannenieki”, - organic A/h “Rogas”; Project realization period is from 30.07.2018 to 30.07.2020. The goal of the project is to develop new, zero leftover processing technologies in the processing of fruits and berries and, develop innovative and functional food products on the basis of these technologies. These products would have a superior biologically active substance content and nutritional value and would also include biological products. During the last years there is an active search for natural ingredients which contain biologically active substances which would positively impact human health and therefore replace artificially synthesised chemical compounds. Within the project the following work has been done: Price surveys for purchasing the necessary equipment have been made and companies that will perform the necessary tests and analysis have been chosen. A full soil agrochemical property analysis has been done for the land owned by project partners and their supplied ingredient biologically active component evaluation has been finished. Experiments for the development of a new apple processing technology have been performed in the LLU development process, as well as the development of innovative product packaging. The penultimate stage of research has been summarized. Work began on the development of recipes for new products.
