ENHANCING RESEARCH AND INNOVATION CAPACITY OF TUBITAK MRC FOOD INSTITUTE ON DIETARY POLYPHENOLS AND BIOAVAILABILITY/ BIOEFFICACY

Project description

Dietary antioxidants supporting Turkish research and our health

Taking care of your car daily and sticking to its regular service and maintenance enhance its performance and lifetime, and typically at a much lower cost than repairs after years of neglect. The same is true of our health. Dietary polyphenols are non-nutrient secondary metabolites present in almost the totality of plant foods including fruits, vegetables, grains, spices, herbs, wine, tea, coffee, extra virgin olive oil and chocolate. They have important protective effects, largely associated with their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities. High intake has been associated with lowered risk of common chronic and degenerative diseases. EU funding of the PhenolAcTwin project will help build the capacity of the Turkish TUBITAK MRC Food Institute in the field of dietary polyphenols with benefits for young researchers and citizens alike.
