Take a look of project's partnership.
Disease-related malnutrition affects 33 million Europeans, a burden of 170bn€ for the EU. Oral Nutritional Supplements (ONS) are specially formulated foods designed to meet patients’ nutritional deficiencies during illness. This $10Bn ONS market is dominated by Nutricia, Nestlé, Fresenius & Abbott.
However, large portion sizes and bad taste in ONS induce very low levels of treatment compliance (50%), dramatically limiting effectiveness. Manufacturers face a technological barrier that prevents them from increasing protein density and thus reducing volume.
The aim of the project is to bring to the market a disruptive hyperproteinic ingredient – Protein Plus© - for ONS manufacturers, that overcomes this technology gap.
Founded in 2004, EMULSAR invented and patented its Smart Emulsion Nanotechnology© (SENT©), used to manufacture disruptive ingredients for health and nutrition. Since 2012, SENT© has produced hundreds of tons of food ingredients (used by Casino, Unilever…to create healthier & tastier products), proving its industrial sustainability and compatibility with commercial food standards.
In Phase 1, we proved (at lab-scale) that by applying SENT© to proteins, we can produce a protein-dense ingredient that makes it possible to reduce current ONS volumes by half.
Our Phase 2 objectives are to optimize our Protein Plus© ingredient, validate the industrial process, establish clinical proof of improved ONS compliance & prepare our market launch.
Our project will improve the competitiveness of ONS products, create public healthcare savings and enhance Europe’s health capital. For EMULSAR, the ONS market is the best path for becoming a European technology leader in health food, allowing EMULSAR to transition from nice-to-have applications (mass-market food) to must-have applications (medical nutrition). The current project is the key to reaching the full commercial potential of our nanotechnology, generating 75M€ in revenues & managing 120 employees by 2020.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "PROTEINPLUS" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
