Separation and concentration processing for functional food ingredients and products

Advanced separation processes are key to the extraction, separation and purification of valuable components from agri-food streams. They can add value to dairy, horticulture and meat industry product and co-product streams through the extraction and separation of bioactive and functional molecules and by removing undesirable components such as colour compounds and salts.

This workshop, hosted by CSIRO, provides the ideal opportunity for companies to learn how separation and concentration technology could add value to their business.

You will be able to see demonstrations of a range of separations equipment in the CSIRO food innovation centre’s food processing facility.
