Probiotics

Probiotics are live bacteria introduced into the gut that help the digestive system function properly. The most well known are lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, usually added to dairy products, in particular yogurts.

The Star Trek future of nutrition

New technologies for gathering, analysing and steering consumer well-being, from fitness trackers to nutrition, health and microbiome apps, to name a few, are trending. As a result the volume of data generated in this area has been growing rapidly.

Using Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) Data to Inform Food Safety Decisions

Prof. Fanning has been helping develop applications around genome sequencing to minimise risks in global food production and improve food safety decision-making. Two practical outcomes have emerged: prevent contamination problems in the industrial environment and track infections when outbreaks occur. The genome data helps identify pathogens in the food chain, like listeria monocytogenes. “We think […]

Petrarch and the mathematics of love

Love is the theme of the great majority of songs, poems, books, films, theatre show and any sort of artistic expression. Probably it is not too far-fetched to say that everyone wants to love and be loved; all of us dream of finding the “twin-soul” with whom share the rest of the life and being surrounded by many friends. “All you need is love”, according to The Beatles.

The benefits and hazards of using insects for food and feed

Insects are a source of energy, protein, fat, minerals and vitamins. Mean estimates show energy levels to be around 400–500 kcal per 100 g of dry matter, making them comparable with other protein sources. However, there are some potential biological, chemical and environmental hazards associated with the use of farmed insects as food and feed.

From John Snow to Dr. Strange

Data science is about extracting knowledge from data, discovering patterns and building insights through records and facts. Contrary to popular belief, it is the opposite of trying to prove something.

Trans Fatty Acids – The Indisputable Enemy

When it comes to healthy eating, there are plenty of different opinions, information and myths out there. No other scientific topic, affecting everybody, seems to be discussed this controversially than the optimal ingredients for a healthy diet.

Our 8-step data journey for complex projects

As data is at the core of Creme Global’s services we needed to find the best way to track and improve all data activities. We also realised the need to manage how the data flows throughout the timespan a project.

The evolution of data processing technologies in the food industry (1/2)

The evolution of novel data processing technologies is fast paced and the volume of data being generated is growing by the second. The food industry stands to benefit from this and has been testing and adapting various routes for using data science techniques to enhance the production of safe and healthy foods. Data science requires […]

The evolution of data processing technologies in the food industry (2/2)

This article continues from part one of this two-part article. Product Stability and Shelf Life – Predictive Modelling To ensure consumer safety, product quality and to preserve concentration levels of ingredients such as added nutrients, shelf life testing is performed. These are typically carried out via durability or challenge studies that span across weeks or […]
