Food quality and safety: lipids, vitamins and other bioactive compounds

Food components and reactions affecting nutritional and sensory quality and safety of foods are investigated. We investigate bioactive compounds of the dietary fibre complex and  natural enhancement of vitamins in foods. The special focus lies on vitamin B12 and folate production by bioprocessing.  We also study lipids and their reactions, utilization of micro algae and antinutrients in legumes.

  • Vitamins - Vitamin B12 and folate
  • Lipids and their reactions
  • Antinutrients in legumes
  • Utilization of micro algae
