- intensification of technological processes in the food industry using laser technology;
- biotechnology in food production, bioconversion of agricultural raw materials, processing and utilization of agricultural waste into food and feed products;
- development of new types of therapeutic and prophylactic and functional food products;
- nanosystems in the production of biomaterials and food products;
- quality and safety of food products.
SRIFT consists of 3 scientific-research laboratories (SRL):
- Problematic SRL for the creation of new generation food products;
- SRL of nanotechnology in the food and processing industry;
- SRL of technologies for food and processing industries;
PROBLEMATIC SCIENTIFIC-RESEARCH LABORATORY FOR THE CREATION OF NEW GENERATION FOOD PRODUCTS
“Problematic scientific-research laboratory for the creation of new generation food products” is a structural subdivision of the Scientific Research Institute of Food Technologies JSC “ATU”, leading scientific fundamental and applied research in the field of increasing the nutritional and biological value of bread products, the development of technologies for grain types of bread and others products based on plant raw materials (legumes and oilseeds, various medicinal plants, vegetables, fruits, etc.) of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The main scientific directions of the laboratory:
- development of “cold” technologies for food products of a new generation, the so-called “live” food based on germinated grains;
- development of resource-saving technologies for processing grain and other agricultural crops, including non-traditional raw materials rich in fiber (dietary fiber);
- development of new types of functional food products;
- development of new types of grain bread and bakery products.
commercialization of the production of grain mixtures for the enrichment of bread products.
