    Author : Malin Ekblad; [2022]
    Keywords : heritage cereals; consumer awareness; consumer acceptance; consumer preference; food quality;

    Abstract : Heritage cereals, a group of cereals that have not been subjected to modern crop breeding, have been getting attention due to their generally high genetic diversity, traits like high drought and disease tolerance as well as high nutritional values. Knowledge about how consumers relate to heritage cereals in Sweden is limited, and therefore this thesis aims to, firstly, explore acceptance, awareness and preferences among a specific consumer group; students in the agriculture program at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, and, secondly, quality perception in relation to heritage cereals among consumers, bakers and retailers, in a Swedish context.

  4. 4. Increase of biogas production by incorporating residual streams from agriculture

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Stephanie Fjäll; [2022]
    Keywords : Anaerobic digestion; Agricultural residue; Lignocellulosic biomass; Mechanical pretreatment; Biogas production; Biorefinery; Chemical engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : To expand the biogas production in Region Västra Götaland (RVG), residual streams from the agricultural sector can function as a large-scale supplier of biomass. The production of biogas decreases the dependence of fossil fuels and the digestate that is formed can also be returned to the agricultural sector, creating a closed loop. READ MORE

  5. 5. Product development of side-stream press cake through fermentation
