Projecttitel: Prebiotics from plant kingdom side streams
Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedsel
MMIP: D4: Duurzame en veilige verwerking
Looptijd: 2019 – 2023
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.
