Biopolymers for the food industry
With infrared microspectroscopy at Elettra it is possible to investigate and characterize polymer matrices and films structure, widely used in the food industry because they are biocompatible and biodegradable and ensure product consistency and a pleasing sensation on the palate.


Food properties and taste appeal
The different consistencies of the many varieties of bread are determined less by ingredients than by internal structure properties. At Elettra it was possible to draw relationships between these properties and bread organolettic properties.


Vegetable oils for food preservation
Studies of the crystallographic structure of commonly used oils in food industry, have been carried out at Elettra to reveal the nature of structural changes that occur when fats are subjected to sudden and drastic temperature changes.
