RESEARCH PROGRAMME

Functional Food

 

PROGRAMME SYNOPSIS

Functional foods refer to foods and beverages that have beneficial effects beyond that of basic nutrition. The specialization encompass research on physiological effects of food and food components and their consequent health benefits, development of assay system to study the effects, and development of innovative food products and ingredients for the improvement of key body functions and health. The research also focused on chemical profiling and fingerprinting of ingredients used in functional food for standardization purpose, evaluation of the food safety of functional foods, understanding of the mechanisms of actions and the discovery of bioactive compounds.
