Globally recognized technical and industry experts Dr. Janitha Wanasundara, a research scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Dr. Mehmet C. Tulbek, the director of AGT Foods Research & Development Centre in Saskatoon, Canada, will highlight pulse quality, processing technologies, ingredient and product innovation, nutrition, and future innovation trends in this timely webinar. The event will be chaired by Dr. Phil Kerr, chief technology officer of Prairie AquaTech and hosted by AOCS, a leading international professional organization in this arena and organizer of the 2021 Plant Protein Science and Technology Forum.
Pulses are global superfoods rich in proteins, dietary fiber, and minerals with several functional properties. Over the last three decades, the consumption of pulses and pulse ingredients significantly increased due to the changing demographics, interest in plant-forward foods, growing allergen sensitivity and awareness, increased vegan and sustainable diets vs. traditional diets, and interest in non-GMO, natural, and clean label products.
As a bonus, registrants for this free webinar will also receive free access to the 2020 Plant Protein Science and Technology Forum presentations until February 19, 2021. View the 2020 Forum website for presentation summaries.
