presentation of the ADDITIVE SCREENER web tool By Foodinnov
By Vincent LAFAYE, director of FOODINNOV GROUP


FOODINNOV works daily to reduce or eliminate additives in the products of its customers. Certain uncompromising reformulations are sometimes very complicated. Additives are useful for some. The ADDITIVE SCREENER Web tool makes it possible to categorize the "green" additives - sometimes essential- and to eliminate the controversial "red" ones; based on a set of scientific, media and regulatory data with continuous updating.

Specification of flavor taste: impact on the productivity of the food industry.


Choosing the most relevant flavor for product development is often a real headache for food manufacturers. By independently characterizing the taste of aromas on the basis of a harmonized sensory language, iSense allows agro-industrialists comparisons hitherto impossible. They can rationalize their aroma collection and make informed choices more quickly from the overwhelming global offer. They thus shorten the development cycle of their new products to better meet the changing expectations of consumers.

ISO reference methods, as proven as they are, no longer allow manufacturers to respond to the need for reactivity and optimization of the resources they have to face. The alternative methods developed by Bio-rad offer complete, efficient and flexible solutions capable of adapting to the specific needs of each control laboratory.

Difference between approaches to hazard analysis according to geographic location


A hazard analysis is the first step in the risk assessment process. Since this is a relatively new concept, not all members of the global combustible dust community have the same approach in terms of hazard analysis or dust hazard analysis. Differences in market, business structures and geography clearly lead to technical variations. This session aims to highlight the differences and commonalities that can be encountered during various works of technical experts, depending on the geographic location. The goal is to help the factory manager choose the technical elements he wants to use in his hazard analysis in terms of the risk of industrial dust explosion.
