Background and activities

Project working title: A comprehensive investigation on quality, processing aspects and consumer preferences of little utilized resources (LUR)

As part of the OPTiMAT project, the overall idea of my PhD project is to increase the utilization of little utilized marine resources (LUR). Hereby, I focus on the chemical and physiochemical characterization of the chosen raw material as well as investigate on quality parameters like post mortem factors and processing technologies. One subgoal is to add value to the rest raw material (i.g. cut-offs) following the sustainable approach of a holistic utilization of food sources. Consumer acceptability of new products plays a crucial role and hence will be considered.
