is an EU-FP7-SME (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) project with the main objective to increase the value of convenience food, such as ready meals and dairy and cereal products, by adding functional ingredients, produced from underutilised marine-based raw materials and by-products from fish processing, with confirmed bioavailability.
The focus is on omega-3 (oil and powder) and seaweed (extract) which may enhance positive health effects and stability, and enhance flavour to meet consumers’ demand. The functional properties of the enriched products are being studied via dietary intervention.
EnRichMar project meeting will be organised on 19-20th of May and hosted by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, in Espoo Finland. In connection with the project, a workshop will be held with the aim to provide technological know-how on functional foods and their production, health claims for functional foods, and information on trends in food and health.
Presentations will be given by selected experts in these areas from VTT. The topics in this workshop are of high relevance for the participating companies involved in EnRichMar, but will be open for everyone interested, free of charge. This open workshop will be organised on Tuesday 19th of May 2015, between 09:00 and 11:10 at VTT, Tietotie 2, Espoo (Otaniemi) (Seminar hall, number 3 on the map):
