Research priorities

AFC research activities are based on the following main hypotheses:

Hypothesis 1:
The post-prandial phase is a driver of oxidative stress and low-grade inflammation.
Research projects within hypothesis 1

Hypothesis 2:
Food concepts targeting the composition of the gut microbiota may improve metabolic risk parameters.
Research projects within hypothesis 2

Hypothesis 3:
Anti-diabetic food concepts targeting systemic inflammation induce benefits on cognitive functioning.
Research projects within hypothesis 3

Hypothesis 4:
A multifunctional dietary approach targeting inflammation is advantageous in relation to cardio-metabolic risk markers and weight regulation in healthy subjects.
Research projects within hypothesis 4

Analytical excellence:
AFC pursues development of analyze methods and build-up of research infrastructure.
