Project

Processed meat in the diet: influence of reactive oxygen/nitrogen/chlorine species during gastrointestinal digestion (3E023616)

Processes during the digestion of meat-based meals will be investigated.
Research questions: to what extent do the 1/ fat and antioxidant and 2/ salt and nitrite content of processed meat in interaction with the non-meat foods in a meal influence the oxidation/nitrosation/chlorination processes during digestion?
An optimized pig model will be installed and analyses will be performed on digestion samples.
