Samenvatting

The goal of this research is to improve the market perspective of sustainable omega-3 rich oils, such as algae and krill oil, by demonstrating their health benefits. We will investigate the bioavailability/bioaccessibility and health benefits of different omega-3 oils in order to bring out their health benefits. The oils will be investigated within in vitro and in vivo gut immune and brain models to link bioavailability to bioactivity properties and confirm health aspects as seen for fish PUFAs.
