Research Personnel Leader:

Research Duration Start:
1 January 2019
31 December 2020
Research Location UPD-CHE
Research Description This project addresses the need of BEPCO to optimize use of their low value chicken eggs by producing instant dried chicken egg white powder and granules through the use of spray drying and aggiomeration technologies. the establishment of protocols on dried whole chicken egg white powder and granules entails the characterization of the raw materials which includes dirty and check, and soft shell eggs, optimization of spray drying process as well as aggiomeration technology characterization of the spray dried egg white powder and dried granulated eggs and conduct of the optimized powdered and granulated eggs to specific bakery and dressing products. The NCR food innovation facility , UPD Pilot food plant,innohub and the DOST Onelab will be utilized to carry out characterization of raw materials and optimized powdered and granulated products and the spray drying and aggiomeration process optimization
Research Objectives Development of Instant dried chicken egg white powder and granules using spray dyring and agglomeration technologies from low value chicken shell eggs
