Bitter Flavor Masking Mixtures
Mixtures have been developed that have a superior ability to mask bitter and off flavors in foods and beverages. The primary application of this is reducing the amount of sodium chloride in foods, though it can also be applied to sweeteners like glycerine to increase their relative content.
Surfactant-Free Nanocomposite Microparticles for Fast Redispersion and Dissolution of Active Nanoparticle Agents
NJIT has developed a formulation platform technology that enables surfactant-free, fast dissolution and delivery of active nanoparticle agents for enhancing the bio-availability, functionality and/or activity of nanoparticle agent(s) during use by consumers and/or customers.
Biocontrol packaging using bacteriophages control the growth of pathogens in food, such as ready-to-eat meat, cantaloupe and sprouts. The phages can be printed on an inkjet printer. This packaging option is effective at low temperatures, where some pathogens such as Listeria can still grow despite refrigeration.
Plant Biofactories: Waste Crops & Compounds of Interest
Post-harvest abiotic stress can be used to induce the overproduction of compounds of interest in horticultural crops that have not passed the quality assurance process at the commercial level. Our researchers can induce the overproduction of shikimic acid, chlorogenic acid glucosinolates and phenolic compounds with selectivity at the isomer level.
Volcanic Rock Fertilizers
Our researchers developed an electrochemical process to enrich volcanis rock with organic fertilizers. These fertilizers can improve the soil physical properties and can slowly deliver plant nutrients for horticultural crops.
