HumMilkPres project – obtained funding in the Small Grant Scheme 2020 competition
The project with the budget of 869 212,50 PLN will be carried out in the Department of Chemistry, Technology and Biotechnology of Food, Faculty of Chemistry, Gdańsk University of Technology.
The objective of the project is developing an new procedure for preservation and storage of human milk that will minimize the loss of nutrients and biologically active components. This goal will be achieved by designing and building a prototype of a device for generating pressure at subzero temperature, intended for samples with a volume of 100-150 ml and determining the changes of selected nutrients and biologically active components and the degree of microbiota inactivation in human milk during storage at subzero temperature and high pressure in the conditions when the water remain unfrozen.
