Dairy products are a very important component of the diet in developed countries. Especially the fermented ones, can accumulate high levels of biogenic amines and, particularly, of histamine.

The synthesis and accumulation of biogenic amines in food requires the presence of bacteria with decarboxylase activity, environmental conditions that allow their growth and enzyme activity, and, of course, the presence of the amino acids that are substrates of the enzyme. In the case of histamine, the presence of histidine.

Therefore, the general objective of this project is to develop a system that allows the production of a new range of dairy products with a low histamine content, so that their consumption is suitable for patients with deficiency in diaminoxidase (DAO), the enzyme in charge of metabolizing histamine.

 

“This project has been funded by FEDER/Ministry of Science and Innovation and Universities – National Research Agency”

Objective: To promete technological development, innovation and a quality research
