Gut Health & Bioactive Peptides

Projecttitel: Gut Health & Bioactive Peptides (GUT-BIOPEP)
Projectnummer: LWV 20.218
Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedsel
MMIP:  D2 – De consument, duurzame en gezonde voeding, in een groene leefomgeving
Projectleider: Vanesa Muncan

Today, the guts of healthy and diseased individuals are exposed to diverse mixtures of dairy and more sustainable plant-based proteins and peptides with bioactive functionality. To facilitate beneficial targeted utilization of these compounds, knowledge gaps on their effects on development, maintenance and restoration of functional gut integrity need to be filled (this proposal). This will open new opportunities for novel nutritional solutions from early life to adulthood in health and disease.
