CyberColloids is a unique organisation devoted to bringing texture innovation to the food industry thus enabling companies to cost effectively add value through R&D. The company is a recognised centre of excellence with a global reach and a successful participant in EU funded research. We are an Irish based SME with staff also in the UK.
Delivering innovative solutions for cost effective texture remains a core focus but the world of food texture and the way we think is changing. The food industry is being driven towards the use of more natural, inherently healthy and less processed food ingredients and is also facing challenges of resource efficiency and minimisation of waste. As such we are now working with a wide variety of plant and seaweed derived materials, including by-products and “waste” from food processing as well as new or underutilised wholefood biomass resources.
The idea is to develop new functional food fibres and ingredients for use as label friendly fat replacers, water-binders and novel gelling agents. We have a toolbox of processing methodologies that can be applied to most polysaccharide rich biomass resources and the capability to transfer and/or demonstrate these technologies at pilot or commercially relevant scale.
