Research in food

This multidisciplinary field explores how the consumption of various nutrients and bioactive compounds affects physiological functions and disease risk, and seeks to understand the intricate relationship between dietary patterns, food composition and human health.

We investigate the nutritional value of different foods, the impact of dietary habits on metabolism, and the role of nutrition in preventing and managing chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and malnutrition.

Additionally, studies within this theme explore sustainable food production, food security, and ethical considerations in food choices, aiming to guide policies and strategies that promote optimal nutrition for individuals and communities. We seek to advance knowledge and foster a healthier society through evidence-based dietary recommendations and public health interventions.
