CSIRO and Jack Cowin launch v2food
PARTNER RELEASE - What do you get when you pair up the nation’s best-of-breed scientists and one of Australia’s most prolific food industry pioneers? v2food.
Catcher of the rye: Science can now detect any gluten in any food
Scientists from Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, can now detect gluten in any food and show which grain it comes from, making it easier for food companies to correctly label their products.
Sex lives of flies could be key to tackling food waste
This National Science Week, Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, has revealed how a secret recipe to get Black Soldier Flies in the mood could help tackle our local food waste crisis.
Australian Plant Proteins
Australian Plant Proteins (APP) optimised the protein content extracted from faba beans to more than 80% through a CSIRO Kick-Start project.
Converting food waste
Food currently lost or wasted throughout the production and consumption cycle can be converted into nutritious and tasty foods.
CSIRO Protein Plus
The CSIRO Protein Plus Nutrition and Exercise Plan is a lifestyle book that highlights the importance of protein and resistance exercise for weight loss and healthy ageing.
Novacq prawn feed
Novacq prawn feed, developed by CSIRO, is helping Australian prawn farmers grow bigger, healthier prawns sustainably, faster and cheaper.
We are using mass spectrometry (MS) and proteomics to help identify key proteins that will benefit Australia's livestock and plant industries, and improve human health.
Protein Production Facility
The Recombinant Protein Production Facility provides Australian researchers access to state-of-the-art facilities for protein production, process development and optimisation.
Food and Agribusiness Roadmap
Future growth of the sector cannot be sustained by productivity improvements alone. CSIRO Futures worked with industry and researchers to identify major growth opportunities and what the food and agribusiness sector needs to do to achieve them.
