Functional foods lab:Development of novel functional foods

Many functional foods have lifesaving properties. Food provides vital nutritional support for our bodies, and functional foods that support homeostasis, helping metabolism and bodily functions achieve balance, are one of several areas experiencing rapid growth. One consequence of changes in eating habits is increased risk of life-threatening diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Thus, there is an increasing demand for functional foods. The goal of our laboratory is to explore novel functional foods, and contribute to the maintenance and development of better health for people everywhere.
