example of a completed project



Co-certified by three competitiveness hubs – VITAGORA, Q@ALIMED and NUTRITION SANTÉ LONGÉVITÉ (NSL) – and grouping academic and industrial partners, the NUTRICE project was supported by the French state and local authorities. It served to understand the influence of various cooking parameters on the organoleptic and nutritional qualities of rice. The project gave rise to new ranges of rice cookers responding to consumer demands on nutrition and health.
