Grass protein in foods – just around the corner, or?

Recent years have witnessed a major focus on replacing animal protein in foods by plant-based alternatives, and proteins are a key focus area for iFOOD in the years to come. Soya protein in particular is popular in various products. However, Danish grasslands might be a useful protein source for human food. Researchers from Aarhus University work…

Is it possible to replace the dietary protein sources which we know and use today by insect protein ?

How healthy and nutritious are insects?

Currently, alternative protein sources are in focus and insects in particular. The nutrient contents of insects have been mapped. However, we still need to investigate several factors when considering insects as human nutrition, including how the nutrients from insects are absorbed, and how they affect our satiety. These are some of the questions…

How do cull sows respond to the transport to the slaughter plant?

New research from the Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University, shows that transport of cull sows to the slaughter plant in many cases involves a deterioration of the sows’ physical condition compared to before they were loaded on the truck. The results may play a part in improving animal welfare during transport and contribute to the…
