The poster contribution award was delivered to Dea Anton


During the 12th World Congress on Polyphenols Applications organized in Bonn, Germany on September 25-28, 2018, the Scientific Committee awarded Dea Anton from Estonian University of Life Sciences, Estonia for her poster presentation entitled “Antimicrobial and antioxidative effects of rhubarb, tomato and berry powders in raw and cooked pork".

"Our research group participated at the congress with two poster presentations, the results of the research, carried out under the international project SUSMEATPRO and Estonian University of Life Sciences financed project.

In preliminary tests (poster presented by Piret Raudsepp) different plant parts of different cultivars with the best antioxidative and antimicrobial properties were selected for further use as berry or vegetable powders in meat products. The product studies showed the capability of plant supplements to reduce bacterial load, inhibit lipid oxidation, prolong the shelf-life and improve sensory qualities of meat products. The ongoing and future research will be focused on plant powder blends and finding out specific polyphenolic compounds responsible for these beneficial effects.

We attended the World Congress on Polyphenols Applications for the first time and we enjoyed it very much. It was a well organized event, interesting oral presentations, plenty of room for posters and time to read, think and discuss. We met the researchers of different research fields willing to co-operate and representatives of food industry interested in our results. We got good memories and experience from this year. The recognition motivates us to continue our research, to achieve more interesting results and present our findings at forthcoming congresses".
