Areas

Secondary plant products, in particular carotenoids and polyphenols,
e.g. in tomatoes, berries, tea, grains

Focus

Antioxidant activity as a possible cause for the protective effects
these plant ingredients have on human health and the stability of food

Investigations

- Bioavailability and metabolism in human beings
- Biological effects
- Processing steps of food production
(aim: to minimise losses of carotenoids and polyphenols
occuring during production)

National and international cooperations

2016 - 2020: COST Action EUROCAROTEN
2006 - 2011: EU-funded Project LYCOCARD
