PROMETHEUS objective is to help the European food industry to reduce consumer exposure to undesirable compounds formed during food processing without affecting food quality or microbiological safety.

Several food processing techniques will be investigated: vacuum baking, high hydrostatic pressure, ohmic heating and ingredient microencapsulation. In addition innovative analytical tools able to monitor online the formation of such undesirable neoformed compounds  will be developed to allow rapid optimization of the formulation and processing parameters.

The expected project outcomes will improve the competitiveness of the food industry by anticipating future contamination regulations, and help it to innovate by implementing new technologies in order to better control the safety and overall quality of their products.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No. 265558
