Development of new products based on sprouted pseudo-cereals, cereals and legumes
CAP funds support improved nutrition of Czech cereal and legume crops
The ‘Semix Pluso’ company processes and treats all kinds of cereals, pulses, and oilseeds. In cooperation with the Research Institute of Brewing and Malting (VÚPS), and with CAP co-finance, it implemented a project to create a series of new health food products from sprouted cereals and legumes (buckwheat, quinoa, lentils, beans, chickpeas, gluten-free oats, etc.). The new projects are sold direct-to-customer and are of particular value to people suffering from celiac disease.
The project resulted in the construction of a new production hall for the germination of cereals, and a new line of dried cereal, pseudo-cereal, and legumes-based products.
Outcomes allow the company to produce an array of semi-finished and finished products from germinated seeds and grains in a way that preserves their health benefits and which guarantees a long shelf-life.
The project findings have been shared via scientific studies and papers, in connection with the University of Ostrava and a nutritional expert.
