Her project has already won a award. Read more

Research with taste

Foods should become healthier. The focus is also on vitamin D - a substance that scientists in Halle have now even found in cocoa and chocolate, products made from the cocoa fruit. Nutrition research at the MLU has long since become interdisciplinary, and research is often carried out within the framework of networks. One of these is the competence cluster for nutrition and cardiovascular health "nutriCARD". Read more
