Objective: Research in microbial bioprocesses to obtain ingredients (probiotics and postbiotics) and fermented foods with health benefits, based on the role and behavior of the intestinal microbiota and in order to strengthen it.
In BIOFOOD project, CNTA has worked, on the one hand, on the development of different fermented foods and the use of starter cultures with healthy functionality in precision fermentation processes. On the other hand, progress has been made in the evaluation of the probiotic potential of microbial strains and their use in microencapsulated form.
Both actions contribute to the development of a range of differentiated products, with functionalities that are difficult to obtain through live microorganisms.
