Project description

The goal of this project is: - to develop new X-ray CT instruments to inspect food structures and microstructures of porous food with the best possible image quality and resolution, which must be in balance with the processing and equipment. - to develop new tomographic reconstruction algorithms and analsemethodes for improved quantification of food structure parameters. - to use X-rays to improve the knowledge of relationships between processing, dietary structure and nutritional properties, using advanced mathematical methods. - to develop equipment for the design and engineering of new food and new production processes for the food. - Develop Affordable online equipment for food inspection in production halls for the benefit of the food industry in Flanders
