ONIRIS is a higher education & research institute affiliated to the French Ministry of Agriculture. The baking Platform of GEPEA research Unit – CNRS 6144 – www.gepea.fr , supervised by the Professor Alain LE-BAIL contains all types of equipment needed for baking tests including a prototype vacuum – pressure mixer (collaboration with VMI in the ANR “MIXI-LAB LABCOM), dough sheeter, several ovens & analytical tests to assess the impact of the process on bread quality (calorimetry, texture, color, enzymatic activity, fermentation parameters etc.). Professor Alain LE-BAIL, is the PI for ONI. His research interest fields include among other: frozen bakery, reduction of salt, sugar & lipids in pizza, sugar reduction in cake & biscuits, and developing low energy oven. The main tasks of ONI will concern the malting process in collaboration with YEM & the vacuum – pressure mixing in collaboration with VMI. ONI will develop innovative malted flours in partnership with YEM.
