Enzymatic modification of sugar beet pulp regarding its properties as dietary fibre

Project Manager:
Dipl.-Ing. Natalia Fava

 

 

Sugar beet pulp, a by-product of the sugar industry, is rich in cell-wall polysaccharides this making it very interesting as a dietary supplement.

 

The aim of this project is to study the structural modifications promoted by polysaccharide degrading enzymes as modifying tools in order to develop novel products with improved functional properties.

 

Study of the modified products will be assessed by considering the changes in the composition, water-binding capacity, swelling and water-retention capacity of the original products, and partly by considering their new processing characteristics.

 

Attention will be given to the new sensory characteristics of the fibre - and the foodstuffs in which they are incorporated -� that result from modification, in particular the changes in hydration behaviour.
