Paul Kroon and Paul Finglas from the Institute of Food Research are leading a new collaborative project called BACCHUS, funded by the European Commission, that will help small businesses develop robust scientific evidence to back up health claims for new, innovative food and drink products that will help improve cardiovascular health. In past years, we have [...]
Beneficial effects of dietary bioactive peptides and polyphenols on cardiovascular health in humans (BACCHUS)
In May, as part of a £250 Million strategic investment in UK bioscience, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council announced funding for 14 key national capabilities, three of which are located at the Institute of Food Research. Two of these are databases collating information on food composition (Food Databanks) and predictive microbiology (ComBase), and the other [...]
British eggs contain double the selenium of 30 years ago, according to a new study led by the Institute of Food Research’s Food Databanks National Capability. They also contain 75% more vitamin D, 20% less fat and more than 10% less cholesterol compared with data from previous surveys. “Eggs are a valuable component of a [...]
IFR is contributing to a new EU project, TDS-Exposure, that is aiming to improve and standardise the monitoring of our exposure to contaminants and other food components in our diet. These will be based on Total Diet Studies, which assess the contamination of food in the diet as a whole, rather than of raw ingredients, and [...]
Regulators from 19 European countries, plus China and the US, recently met with partners from an EU project which is aiming to foster the safe use of plant-derived food supplements. The meeting with the project partners of PlantLIBRA (PLANT food supplements: Levels of Intake, Benefit and Risk Assessment) covered outcomes and strategies to tackle priorities in [...]
The Institute of Food Research is hosting a three day international conference, from 14th-16th September, on food composition and sustainability diets, bringing together 170 experts from 50 different countries to exchange ideas and opinions on the latest developments in the field. The aim of this will be to extend a scientific definition of what a [...]
