We underestimate our own consumption of candy and chips

We are well aware that our own consumption of candy and chips is too high - but still, each of us believe that our consumption is lower than that of other consumers, according to a new study by the MAPP Centre and Department of Food Science, Aarhus University. The study focuses on the development in portion sizes for candy and chips in Denmark.

A new environmentally friendly source of protein for pigs is being tested at AU Foulum

At present, researchers at Aarhus University are testing a new environmentally friendly source of protein, Uniprotein, in a feeding experiment with pigs. Uniprotein is a source of protein made of bacteria able to grow on methane as substrate. A future use of this type of protein will, among others, be able to reduce the carbon footprint for the…
