In those labs we will demonstrate our capabilities to process the insects into raw powder and enriched protein powder, describe the methods for nutritional value analysis (protein, fat, fatty acids, antioxidant, etc) and sensory analysis ( flavor and taste profile using the advance e-tongue and nose, GCMS and texture by texture analyzer and viscometer).
