Antibiotics counteract the beneficial effect of whole grain

Antibiotics may impede the health properties of whole grain, especially for women. A recent study conducted by Aarhus University and The Danish Cancer Society demonstrates this. The results emphasize the importance of maintaining a restrictive use of antibiotics.

Grasses are good at using the sun to be productive

Scientists from Aarhus University have studied how efficient crops are at using the sun to produce biomass for biorefining. This knowledge can be put to use to optimise biomass yields and improve sustainability.

Increased knowledge required on production of protein from green biomasses

Green biomasses hold a significant potential as an alternative to traditional protein sources. However, a recent report establishes the fact that further knowledge is required on the economic and environmental consequences in case an actual commercial production is implemented.
