Project summary: 

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.

Project results: 

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.
