Flavour Changing Neutral Current (FCNC) processes are essential for pinning down free parameters in the Standard Model and for probing possible new physics beyond it. In this work, we compute the non-perturbative strong-interaction effects on a collection of FCNC processes using Lattice QCD. Ratios of the relevant matrix elements of Kaon processes are computed for several initial and final meson momenta and for six light-meson masses ranging from approximately 435 MeV to 815 MeV. Fits of these ratios to the mass and recoil behaviours predicted by Chiral Perturbation Theory are then used to extract the relevant bag parameters.
