  Revista Alimentaria has published an article about the benefits of consuming meat. For this, he has contacted the collaboration of Dr. Mónica Flores, an expert in meat and meat products from IATA. Meat is one of the most complete foods for our body. An adequate consumption of this can bring great benefits to our health, since it has a very complete nutritional value. Therefore, in diets in which their consumption is eliminated in a more difficult being, achieve good levels of certain vitamins...

Article SINC Agency The sequencing of 200 strains of Saccharomyces eubayanus, a wild species that contributed to the generation of the hybrid yeast responsible for lager beer, reveals a great diversity and genetic exchange of populations around the world. The analysis of this species of industrial interest also allows us to understand the evolutionary processes that occurred between modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans. More than a decade ago, the discovery of the Saccharomyces eubayanus...

Despite the fact that their excessive consumption is related to health problems, saturated fats are still present in high proportions in many of the foods we eat. The main reason for this is the complexity of their replacement, since the functionality provided by saturated fats is key to technological manufacturing and responsible for many high-quality attributes in foods. Saturated fats are responsible for a large number of high-quality attributes in the foods we eat, mainly in relation to...
