Crops for the future climate

A flood can ruin a potato harvest in just 24 hours. However, by understanding the plant's defence mechanisms against flooding, it is possible to create more crop-resistant crops that can withstand flooding. An international research team with the participation of Associate Professor Kim Hebelstrup from the Department of Molecular Biology and…

Climate change induced drought threatens the world's wheat production

In the coming years, a growing portion of the global wheat growing areas will be affected by drought and this will have serious consequences for the global food supply. It may lead to a significant reduction of the wheat harvest by the turn of the century. Even if global warming is limited to the 2 degrees as stipulated in the Paris Agreement of…

Long-life lactose-free milk is exposed to challenges in relation  to shelf-life, stability and quality, including taste and appearance, when stored unrefrigerated for a longer period, which is the case in many parts of the world. Researchers from Aarhus University are currently studying how so-called lactase enzymes – enzymes added to lactose-free UHT milk, in order for people suffering from lactose intolerance to be able to drink it – affect the milk, and if these can be improved.

New and cleaner enzymes to improve the quality of long-life lactose-free milk

Long-life milk (ultra-high-temperature (UHT) processed milk) is a growing global market. However, especially long-life lactose-free milk is exposed to challenges in relation to shelf-life, stability and quality, including taste and appearance, when stored unrefrigerated for a longer period, which is the case in many parts of the world.…
