Carrots can replace synthetic dyes in foods

A number of synthetic dyes in foods are suspected of having unwanted side effects especially for children. For this reason, over the past ten years, the EU has required products containing selected synthetic dyes to have clear warning labels on the packaging. This has resulted in a great demand for natural dyes worldwide. Now researchers from…

AU researchers study the feeding value of pulp for cattle

Pulp is a fibre-rich by-product, emerging from the protein refining of grass-clover. As the pulp forms a considerable part of this process, the utilisation of this, by for instance dairy farmers, is extremely important. Therefore, researchers from AU are currently studying the feeding value of the pulp for cattle, and the preliminary results look…
