Plant based foods and Biochemistry
Our aim is to generate knowledge about functionality of the different food components and their interactions, in order to contribute basic understanding of food ingredients that can be translated into future strategies in food biotechnology.
We work with food sources such as plants, microalgae, fungi, and various side streams. A major focus is molecular and structural characterization of proteins, interactions with other proteins and other components in the food matrix to assess the relation between protein composition, functionality and food quality.¨
Education in Food Science and Technology with specialisation in plant-based foods
If you want to specialise in plant-based foods, you can take the master's degree in Food Science and Technology with a specialisation in plant-based foods
We are in particular interested in plant seed proteins, their quality in respect to amino acid content, in vitro digestibility, content of antinutrients and how processing of the seeds and proteins can affect these parameters.
