Instant Cheese and other new ideas from Fonterra

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:29 pm on 27 June 2019

Now, what on earth is Instant cheese? Can protein be taken in glitter form? Is dairy entering the tech age? 

These questions have been on the minds of Fonterra's scientific branch as they try and find new ways to think about protein in the 21st century. There was a big innovation workshop this morning and Fonterra General Manager of research and development Andy Smith in in to tell us all about it. 

Proteins are the work horses of cells, and are made up of strings of amino acids.
