What are we best at?
1 | A new procedure of enzymatic synthesis for the production of fructooligosaccharides..
Researchers from Spain's Scientific Research Council (CSIC) have developed a new procedure for the enzymatic synthesis of prebiotic fructooligosaccharides, specifically 6-kestose. We seek industrial partners interested in implementing this procedure. [+info]
2 |Novel enzymes improve the efficiency of the production of prebiotic disaccharides.
CSIC has developed new enzymes transgalactosidase and transfucosidase that improve the efficiency of the production of prebiotic disaccharides lacto-N-biose, galacto-N-biose and fucosil-alfa-1,3-N-acetilglucosamine. Industrial partners interested in developing and exploiting this technology under a patent license, are sought. [+info]
3 |Probiotics for the prevention and treatment of obesity and related metabolic diseases
CSIC has patented a strain of the genus Bifidobacterium CECT 7765, a commensal bacterium of the human intestine, with beneficial properties to prevent and treat obesity and the associated disorders (e.g. metabolic syndrome, diabetes, dyslipemia, cardiovascular diseases). It can also contribute to the normal immune function, reducing inflammation and improving the defences against infections. [+info]
4 | Poly (lactic acid) biopolymer material with improved barrier and mechanical properties.
CSIC has developed a new biopolymer material based on poly (lactic acid) with improved barrier and mechanical properties that make it an excellent food packaging material. Industrial partners interested in co-developing and exploiting this technology under a patent license are sought. [+info]
