  • Marine biotechnology advances towards applications in new functional foods

    The marine ecosystem is still an untapped reservoir of biologically active compounds, which have considerable potential to supply food ingredients towards development of new functional foods. With the goal of increasing the availability and chemical diversity of functional marine ingredients, much research has been developed using biotechnological tools to discover and produce new compounds. This review summarizes the advances in […]
  • Marine Bioproducts AS testing viability of marine peptones for high-value products via fermentation

    The commercial viability of the use of marine-derived peptones to produce high-value products via fermentation will be examined through a project led by the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) and Norway-based Marine Bioproducts AS(MB). Referred to as MarineIB, the project began in April 2012 and seeks to establish new supply chains for the production of high-value chemicals, thereby offering a cost-effective, […]

  • Special drink containing omega-3 may enhance memory of early Alzheimer patients

    A new study suggests that people with early Alzheimer’s disease can be benefited by a drink containing some special nutrients. Online edition of Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease contained this report, published on 10 July. Alzheimer patients lose memory as the disease progresses due to the deteriorating connectivity among brain cells. Souvenaid, drink with special nutrients, can improvise this connection, said Dr. Richard […]
  • Researchers Discover Potential Explanation For Why Diets High in Marine DHA Can Improve Memory
