Foods: Structure and Applications

In general, food materials have very complex and hierarchically ordered structures, which in turn, affect their properties, performance and thus applications.

Our projects involve study of this complex interplay and modulating food materials for their commercial applications. We simply optimise preparation methods and/or use additives to tune aforementioned aspects.
