Food security is defined as access to sufficient, safe, nutritious and stable food required to maintain a healthy and active life.
We are researching enhanced biotechnology processes that use marine bioproducts to enhance the quality of processed foods, improve food safety through more sustainable crop production and livestock feed and to remove possible dangerous contaminants.
Our research includes discoveries in:
- functional foods
- protein and supplements
- single cell oils
- soil health
- feed development for aquaculture
- crop protection
Through our research, we have identified omega-3 rich microalgae as a sustainable single cell oil . Due to their abundant availability, these algae's can serve as an alternative to marine-derived omega-3 feed and food sources.
