Foodand Nutrition Laboratory
Anti-aging endeavors through diet
Tiny amounts of food constituents such as polyphenol and carotenoid have shown to be effective in combatting aging and preventing lifestyle-related diseases. Our laboratory is trying to verify how these constituents work. The results of our research are expected to be used in developing new food products that promote health.
