Department of food technology and biotechnology

 

Department of food technology and biotechnology is divided into 10 laboratories in which the research activities are focused on current experimental food processing technologies with emphasis on their effectiveness, utilization of raw materials and ecological approach.

The individual laboratories are specialized in:

  • Analyses of primary metabolites (content of proteins, saccharides, lipids and fibre) and secondary metabolites (antioxidant activity, content of polyphenols and vitamins), analyses of less-known plant species,
  • oil production using novel extraction technologies,
  • evaluation of barley and malt quality to determine high quality malt cultivars,
  • analyses of embryos and embryonic stem cells,
  • identification, differentiation and characterization of cereals, pseudocereals and legumes using molecular and protein markers,
  • analyses of hormone profile of blood and cells, hypophysis hormones, hormones of thyroid gland, steroid hormones etc.
