ProChick: From a surplus product to protein ingredient targeting older adults


ProChick deals with the development of a chicken protein powder for food enrichment targeting the older population and sustainable chicken production.

The aim is to investigate:

  • Foods suitable for enrichment with chicken protein powder in terms of texture and taste
  • How much extra protein is possible to add?
  • The older populations (the final consumer) perception of protein-enriched food?
