The technical challenges of developing novel beverages

Download Presentation

Growth of novel beverages, including beers and ciders with added soft drinks; fruit juices; concentrates and botanicals, has created a number of technical challenges. These include product colloidal stability issues, the introduction of new microbial flora and poorly understood pasteurisation requirements. This talk will briefly outline the work conducted at Campden BRI in this area.
