GRAINS4HEALTH is an interdisciplinary research group focused on grains research to promote health through nutrition. Our group study legumes, cereals, pseudo-cereals and their by-products to obtain safe, quality and convenient food and functional ingredients through sustainable and innovative strategies. We pay special dedication to the optimization, modeling, development and validation of innovative processing technologies to promote the formation of biologically active compounds that contribute to reducing the risk of developing chronic diseases and to improve the safety and nutritional quality of gluten-free foods for celiac people.
The main objective of the GRAINS4HEALH group is to produce healthy ingredients and foods from grains-based products and by-products of agri-food interest through sustainable technological approaches that mainly include germination, fermentation and enzymatic hydrolysis.
