Project description: Interactions between plant-based proteins and dietary fibres; and their effect on fermentation.

The research project is part of the PAN Sweden consortium, focusing on plant-based proteins. The aim of the project is to perform physicochemical characterization of plant-based proteins and dietary fibres to determine possible interactions. Later, investigate how it effects the fermentation of the two macromolecules.

About Jakob

Jakob holds a MSc in Materials Chemistry and a BSc in Biotechnology from Chalmers University of Technology. The interest in my PhD project stems from the drive to be able to help people and contribute to a sustainable society. Being a PhD allows for the freedom to really dive into a specific subject, which has always been of interest for me. The best part is working in the intersection between food science and materials chemistry, trying to connect the two. There I need a broad knowledge, requiring me to learn new things, from analytical chemistry analysis to in vitro fermentation.
