Technology transfer agreement with antidote industry New Delhi


On 31 March 2022, a technology transfer agreement was signed between Nitte (DU) and Nadia Singh Bahl and Carol Singh, Founders of ANTIDOTE Industry, New Delhi. The technology for spray dried almond milk powder was developed by Dr Mamatha BS and Dr Feby Luckose, Food Safety and Biotechnology Division, NUCSER. Spray dried almond milk powder is an innovative product that can replace conventional dairy milk for making beverages, smoothies and soups. Using spray drying technology, liquid almond milk was transformed to a dried material through exposure to high temperature air, for a very short time. By this process, the nutrients are retained in the final product. This product has long shelf-life and reduced volume for storage and transportation and was well accepted through organoleptic assessment.
