PROMETHEUS
 

'PROcess contaminants: Mitigation and Elimination Techniques for High food quality and their Evaluation Using Sensors & Simulation' (PROMETHEUS) project released in May 2014 its final report, announcing the results of its 3 year investigations into how major food processing contaminants form and how this can be monitored and mitigated. This EU scientific research project was developed with the objective to help the European food industry reduce consumer exposure to food processing contaminants without affecting food quality or microbiological safety. Since the beginning of the project in May 2011 till now, new technologies and strategies were developed with a view to use them in industrial applications. Infant formulas, biscuits, canned baby foods, and canned fish and vegetables had been chosen as food models.

The research outcomes reveal promising opportunities to further mitigate process contaminants by developing new products and using innovative technologies and testing methods. They will eventually help the industry to innovate by implementing new technologies in order to better control the safety and overall quality of food products.
