Past event: Coming up: Leading the way in replacing animal protein

At WebinarJam, Tuesday 1 December 2020 from 13.00 till 14.30



Substituting animal-based protein is one of the big challenges of our time. In this webinar, prominent experts from Wageningen University & Research will introduce you to two different ways of tackling the problem: the production of plant-based meat substitutes and the development of new forms of protein in the form of novel foods.  

Atze Jan Van der Goot will talk about Plant Meat Matters, a project on plant-based meat substitutes that closely resemble the texture, taste and nutritional composition of meat products. Such products would make the transition away from animal proteins almost seamless to the consumer, therefore holding great potential.

Ingrid Van der Meer will talk about her research on duckweed, or water lentils, a novel food in Europe and an extremely promising new source of protein that could soon be a part of our diets. She will take us through the process of discovering, developing and getting a new form of protein approved at the European level.

This exciting webinar will be a great opportunity to learn about the sustainable future of food. It will provide you valuable knowledge and a source of inspiration on your way to the ReThink Protein Challenge’2.
