Technology of Agency of the Czech Republic has supported our project:
Sustainable production of a new, functional food with favorable nutritional properties
The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic is an organizational unit of the state that was founded in 2009 by the Act No. 130/2002 Coll. on the support of research, experimental development and innovation. The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic simplifies the state support of applied research and experimental development which has been fragmented and implemented by many bodies before the reform.
Our research partner PRO-BIO, obchodní společnost s.r.o. obtained a new grant from TACR Trend (FW06010036). For the research institution is the co-investigator Sylvie Skalickova.
The objective of the project is to develop a functional foodstuff with new nutritional characters based on cereal or legume suitable for people with dietary restrictions. Another objective is the bio conversion of milling waste either as a protein feed for livestock or fertilizing substrate to revitalize the soil that will ultimately lead towards better soil yield. Dis-continual fermentation with specific microorganisms will be used to reach these goals. Bioconversion of the milling waste is in compliance with the EU principles about sustainable agriculture. The aim is to match the world leaders in the field and strengthen the international competitiveness of the PRO-BIO ltd. company, which is currently the biggest and oldest manufacturer of organic food in the Czech republic.
