The IATA research group led by Dr. José Manuel Guillamón has patented a new method to cleanly and cheaply produce abundant amounts of hydroxytyrosol, one of the most powerful antioxidants known in nature. This substance, with anti-cancer, cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, is found in small amounts in olive oil and wine, among other products. Now, CSIC researchers have developed a recombinant microorganism capable of producing large amounts of very pure...

An IATA research team, coordinated by Amparo López-Rubio, has developed a hydrophobic airgel made from cellulose and with potential in the food sector. This material could be used in the manufacture of containers that extend the useful life of meat and fish by absorbing the fluids they give off.The qualities of this cheap and easy-to-produce airgel also point to other potential applications, such as energy storage, acoustic and thermal insulation, as well as the absorption of pollutants. The...
