Research projects
One of the key objectives of work package 4.2 is developing and applying  advanced analytical procedures to assess the quality of nationally relevant food products. 

These procedures will help determine the composition of food products, including their nutritional content and the presence of any contaminants. The results obtained will be crucial in determining the overall quality of the products and will be used to improve their formulation and composition in line with the overall goals of the OnFoods project.

In addition to assessing the quality of food products, WP 4.2 will comprehensively characterise  new products using various approaches, including those of "omics" techniques. This will help obtain a unique "digital fingerprint" of each product, allowing for a detailed comparison with corresponding reference standards. This information will ensure that new products are of high quality and safe for consumption and meet the needs of specific target groups.

Overall, the work of work package 4.2 will contribute significantly to the OnFoods project by providing valuable information that will be used to improve the quality of food products and ensure their safety for consumption. Using advanced analytical approaches, the project will be able to provide a detailed and comprehensive understanding of food products and pave the way for future improvements in food production and processing.

Task and deliverables

Task 4.2.1.

Development and application of advanced analytical procedures to assess the quality of relevant food product categories in the national context and corresponding analogues implemented according to task 4.1.1 and 4.1.2

Task 4.2.2.

In depth characterization of the new products using different approaches (including omics techniques) to get their unique fingerprint (e.g., foodome evaluation) and to compare it to corresponding benchmark.
