With the aim to establish scientific bases for a healthy human life, we are conducting extensive research in the field of nutritional biochemistry using in vivo and in vitro assays. This project focuses on various aspects of functional and nutritional properties of foods and covers a wide area like bioactivity of food, bioavailability of food, food safety, and functional food product development. Studies are aimed at pinpointing the beneficial properties of naturally available food sources and in the context of selection of these commodities in food processing, agriculture, and medicine.
