Culinology® 101 Workshop IV: Development of Food Systems & Commercialization


Oct. 10, 2008 – Transform a
top-rated recipe into a commercial recipe by navigating the new product
development process from idea to production.

Oct. 10, 2008 – Transform a top-rated recipe into a commercial recipe by navigating the new product development process from idea to production. Attain the gold standard in plant production by employing the scientific principles of experimental design and simple quantitative analysis (pH measurement, viscosity measurement) to ensure repeatability and acceptability. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to work in the Product Development Laboratory to reverse engineer a product and analyze the creative process of concept to commercialization. In this two and a half day workshop you will learn about:

v  Technology in the kitchen (incl. molecular gastronomy, latest cooking techniques & equipment)

v  Use of flavours and flavor sensations considered for new product development

v  The new product development process from idea to production, including: technical feasibility, development of the gold standard, target, cost and pricing structure, converting recipes to formulas, prototype development and testing

v  Principles of experimental design, statistical analyses and simple instrument tests to measure sugar content, viscosity and acidity
