Successful R&D projects where BioCC has participated

Science-based functional jams

Applied research
The project was initiated and managed by BioCC whereas one of Estonia’s major jam producers was involved in it as a business partner. The manufacturer was interested in using the research findings to develop the country’s first functional jams. The goal of the project was to develop jams with scientifically proven functional properties. The jams comprise proven prebiotics, and are based on authentic natural raw materials. All raw materials are subject to requirements and regulations of the EU and the product is labelled with qualified health claim. The products were launched in 2014. The project was financed by Estonian Agricultural Registers and Information Board (PRIA).

Optical biosensor system for the detection of antibiotics in milk

Applied research.
In the project initiated by the University of Tartu, BioCC was involved as a partner carrying out research work. The aim of the project was the development of a novel optical biosensor system for the rapid on-line detection of antibiotic residues in raw milk. Project was financed by Enterprise Estonia.

Project for development of technology for production of prebiotic jam without artificial sweeteners

Applied research
Project for obese and diabetic population groups and technology for production of jam promoting uptake of healthy compounds from milk for subjects at osteoporosis risk. There is a post-project opportunity for product development for jam-based dairy products on the basis of developed technology. Project was financed by Enterprise Estonia.

Conducting in vivo safety, tolerability and efficacy  trials

Trials
Trials were carreid out with foodstuffs in accordance with valid EU legislation and scientific practice.

Product development projects of milk processing farms

Product development
Membership of Estonian Farm Dairies Union comprises 10 major primary milkprocessing farms. Their main area of activities is on-farm production and processing of milk as well as marketing of dairy products. BioCC was involved in product development (cheese, mould-ripened cheese, curds, yogurt, etc.), product quality improvement, cattle and goat feeding, goat milk manufacturing, etc. The project was carried out in 2006 and 2007.

“Milk quality and influencing factors.”

Scientific Seminar Series
A booklet on the quality of milk was published within the frames of the project Estonian Agricultural Registers and Information Board (PRIA). The project was carried out in 15 countires.
