The TOLERA project, funded by the Strategic Program of National Research Consortiums (CIEN), is now underway after this week all participating companies and institutions have met to make the official presentation and kick off. TOLERA’s main objective is to generate knowledge and technologies, as well as to develop solutions applicable to the food industry for the population with food allergies and intolerances. All this, through more effective and safe ingredients and food.
In this context, PAYMSA, a company from Grupo Carinsa specialized in technological solutions and functional ingredients for human food and animal feeding, has as its mission to investigate food allergies related to egg protein. For this, studies will be carried out in animal models with the probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum Lp3547, patented by Grupo Carinsa. These in vivo tests will serve to evaluate the ability of this probiotic to limit and / or improve the immune response of people with food allergies when they are exposed to the allergen.
As well, PAYMSA has set itself the goal of developing foods in which food allergens are eliminated, especially eggs. In this way, a product suitable for consumption without risk to health and that complies with the organoleptic expectations of the consumer and food safety will be available to the population.
Grupo Carinsa achieves, in this way, with the socio-economic TOLERA’s objective: on the one hand, having a beneficial impact on the quality of life of people with food allergies and intolerances. And, on the other, reducing the economic cost of the health sector related to episodes of allergies and anaphylactic reactions involving primary hospitalization.
The rest of the TOLERA participants are Ordesa (leader), Eurecat, F. Iniciativas, Angulas Aguinaga, Betelgeux Christeyns Food Hygiene, Biopolis, Fuselva and Grupo Gullón.
Grupo Carinsa is part of the CRE100DO project, a business transformation program for the growth of companies that benefits the country by spreading high-impact business concepts and practices.
