CDTI supports research in the Andalusian goat milk sector through Capritec project

Escrito por

 

Andalusian companies leaders in innovation come together to explore new possibilities for goat milk control, processing and consumption via an integrated proyect called 'Capritec: Technologies for Optimizing Health, Production and Products of goat milk in Andalusia'. The project will be funded by the ERDF - Innterconecta Programme , co-financed by the Technology Fund and managed by the Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI). This program is intended to promote public-private cooperation in research and development (R&D) ,in areas of strategic importance for the development of Spanish economy.
The consortium, led by COVAP, is composed of six companies from different field , such as agri-food (COVAP , Los Balanchares and Corsevilla ), biotechnology (Domca and Biomedal) and mass catering ( Serunion ). Other research organizations will be subcontracted and actively involved in the project: PAI AGR -195 (Animal Production), AGR -256 (Animal Health : diagnosis and control of diseases) and AGR -263 (CIPAC) groups, from the University of Córdoba , BIO -106 (Microbiology, University of Granada),  BIO -169 group (Microbiology and Parasitology, University of Sevilla) and Carlos Haya University Hospital (Department of Endocrinology and Nutrition ) .
The total budget amounts to 2,620,075.00 euros and will run until the end of 2014. The project objective is to develop dairy goat products with high microbiological and nutritional quality , through integrated actions across the food chain, from primary production and technological processing to the end product. In this sense, this research project will have a strong focus on differentiation and added value of a traditional Andalusian product such as goat's milk, with special attention to health and production aspects of goat populations as well as nutritional properties of goat milk and the benefits on consumer health.
Specifically, the consortium will work of the following lines of research: (i) application of technology to improve milk quality according to health and productive parameters in goat populations; (II ) development of new technologies for conservation and improvement of goat milk properties; (III) revaluation of dairy industry byproduct; (IV ) integration of new products in specific diets (observational studies) ; ( V ) producing Certified Quality goat milk and products
The results of this project will be used to inform the consumer about the properties of goat's milk and derived products, thus favoring its market positioning and consumption.
