Grass protein in foods – just around the corner, or?

2019.05.15Recent years have witnessed a major focus on replacing animal protein in foods by plant-based alternatives, and proteins is a key focus area for iFOOD in the years to come. Soya protein in particular is popular in various products. However, Danish grassland areas might be a useful protein source for human food. Researchers from Aarhus University work hard to make this a suitable alternative.

How healthy and nutritious are insects?

2019.04.23Currently, alternative protein sources are in focus and insects in particular. The nutrient contents of insects have been mapped. However, we still need to investigate several factors when considering insects as human nutrition, including how the nutrients from insects are absorbed, and how they affect our satiety. These are some of the questions that Sofie Kaas Ovesen will try to answer during her Ph.D. study at Department of Food Science, Aarhus University.

Putting grass protein to the test

2019.02.28A group of researchers is currently examining whether it will be possible to replace traditional protein sources with protein from clover grass in organic pig feed. They are rather optimistic.

Two full professors in biorefinery

2019.02.04The Biological and Chemical Engineering Section (BCE) at Department of Engineering (www.eng.au.dk) and the Centre for Circular Bioeconomy (CBIO) at Aarhus University invites applications for two full professors in biorefinery. One full professor in “green biorefinery technology”, and one full professor in “general biorefinery”.

Denmark can grow all its own animal feed protein

2018.08.17Instead of importing large quantities of protein feedstuffs from other countries for food and feed, Denmark can produce enough of its own protein to cover its needs for animal feed and to supplement food requirements.

Engineering students presented themselves to a first and a third prize in European contest

2018.06.25CBIO cooperates with TKI Agri & Food in Wageningen about a student challenge in bioeconomy (BISC-E). The cooperation resulted in that two teams of engineering students from Southern Denmark University in Odense participated on Friday, 22 June in the Dutch BISC-E final. They went home assigned a first place and a third place!
