Public Session about Project ALPHAMAIS

Innovation and development are present, daily, at Decorgel, as a result of highly specialized teams that are dedicated to the search for new knowledge, to offer the market solutions adjusted to their needs, in a timely manner.


With the ambition to continue to grow, Decorgel became involved, in partnership with the Portuguese Catholic University and the University of Algarve, in a project that now ends, the Project ALPHAMAIS – this project had as main objective the integral use of carob in the development of new ingredients and functional food preparations, using biotechnological solutions of micronization and extraction of compounds.
