Establishing a strong and lasting international training network for innovation in food and juice industries: a 4D-research approach for fruit juice processing

Project description

Researchers pour over fruit juice production

With tens of billions of litres of fruit juice sold each year worldwide, the fruit juice market is thriving. Preserving vitamins, minerals and enzymes, cold-pressed juices represent a growing segment of the global juice market. The EU-funded HiStabJuice project will focus on preservation techniques. Specifically, it will provide research training to 11 early-stage researchers (ESRs), who will work on the evaluation of various factors influencing colour stability in fruit juices, focussing on raw materials and preservation techniques as well as associated effects that compromise the health benefits of the final products. The ESRs will gain invaluable insight into the methods used to decide which fruit types to harvest at which times and at which stage of the ripening process. The findings are expected to revolutionise the fruit juice industry.
