Projecttitel: Prebiotics from plant kingdom side streamsProjectnummer: LWV19200 Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedselMMIP: D4: Duurzame en veilige verwerkingLooptijd: 2020 – 2023 Projectleider: Henk Schols
Dietary Fibres as plant polysaccharides beneficially stimulate human health. There is a lack of understanding dietary fibre characteristics, fermentability and related health effects. We aim to enzymatically produce prebiotic and immune-active oligosaccharides from fruit and vegetable by-products which can easily be included in healthy foods. Using selected by-products and enzyme cocktails, well characterised prebiotics will be evaluated for bioactivity and structure-function relationships.
