Abstract:
The laboratory Food and Lipids concentrates its research on the lipid (fat) fraction of foodstuffs. On the one hand, lipids are often under pressure from a health-conscious point of view but on the other hand they are essential for the sensory (e.g. taste), nutritional (e.g. essential fatty acids, fat soluble vitamins) and technological (e.g. spreadibility) properties of fat-rich food products. The mission of the laboratory is thus to conduct research facilitating the production of healthy/ier fat-rich food products without compromising the taste or the technological functionality.

The marine research of the laboratory is related to autotrophic microalgae as new sources of nutritionally-interesting lipids.The current focus is on the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, although work is also done on (phyto)sterols, carotenoids and other lipid-soluble antioxidants. The research investigates the possibilities of the microalgae (from a composition point of view) and how they can be applied in foodstuffs and nutraceuticals (downstream processing). Work is being done on drying, cell disruption, extraction and incorporation of biomass and oil in foodstuffs (e.g. in fruit and vegetable-based products and in eggs of laying hens feeded with microalgae).
