NIZO is a world-leader in contract research for better food and health.

It focuses on the development and application of innovations for the global food and health industry. The company's headquarters are in Ede, the Netherlands.
Food products must adapt in line with consumer demands. The functional properties of proteins - dairy, animal and plant - are essential for the microstructure, texture, taste, stability and flavour of food.
NIZO's expertise in the complex interactions in food and its ability to understand consumers' wishes enables its customers to develop perfect healthy or indulgent products.
NIZO's expertise in applied protein technology spans the supply chain, from the source to its final benefit to the consumer. Its understanding of protein within each step of the chain means that it can control the properties of protein ingredients as well as the quality and perception (mouthfeel and flavour) of the final product. The company is able to optimise the extraction, fractionation and processing in such a way that protein functions are maintained or enhanced.
Its expertise in understanding the interactions between proteins and other ingredients in the food product, as well as the impact of processing, guarantees the optimal combination of protein manufacturing and the application in the final product. NIZO serves the dairy; ingredient; infant; pet food; sport and clinical; food and beverage; and personal care and health markets.
