The nutrigenomics group has several research lines that are supported by grants from national and international public and private entities. The group always has at least a competitive national project or international.
The main research lines that we currently follow are:
- Search of dietary bioactives compounds with beneficial effects against pathologies related with metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes mellitus and hypertension.
- Development of a functional multi-ingredient mix able to simultaneously treat different disorders.
- Generation and purification of bioactive peptides from different protein sources such as food by-products.
- Evaluation of the impact of biological rhythms on the effectivity of bioactives compounds.
