Prior to undertaking in vivo studies, it is often useful to understand the properties of food, their activity and their interactions.
In vitro techniques allow the rapid determination of activity, interactions, digestibility and potentially available bioactive components in food and ingredients. This can help to point to the potential impacts they may have on human health. We have an active research stream investigating antioxidants and polyphenols and their role in human health.
“The Functional Food Centre came to us with really exiting information about the remarkable polyphenol content of our Beet it beetroot juices – and invaluable and much appreciated service. Thank you.”Lawrence Mallinson, James White Drinks Ltd.
