The global market for food and beverage products is undergoing transformative changes. Public demand and regulatory requirements are calling for a radical industry overhaul. The push for healthier products with new ingredients is accelerating, and reliance on historical data alone is no longer sufficient to understand all the processing steps involved. This webinar will address these challenges head-on. We’ll demonstrate how to construct digital models of new food ingredients and recipes at the multiscale molecular level. You’ll see how these models can be leveraged through molecular simulation and AI/ML techniques to obtain key properties, tackling processing challenges and enhancing stability and shelf life.

Webinar Takeaways: Mastering Formulation and Process Optimization

In this webinar, computational chemists, biochemists, data scientists, and chemical process engineers will discover how to:

  • Select and optimize food and beverage formulations to avoid processing issues.
  • Thoroughly screen and evaluate formulations, optimizing key properties for peak performance.
  • Acquire in-depth molecular insights to bridge knowledge gaps in the processing phase.
  • Digitally design and refine formulations for the food and beverage industry.
