Understanding health impact of foods

VTT has an analytical platform for evaluation the health effects of foods and ingredients. The analytical platform includes in vitro and in vivo assays to predict and determine the physiological responses of food products. VTT offers services for companies, when there is an interest in knowing how the products behave in the digestive tract. These services include identification of the food-specific metabolome by using a gastrointestinal model and connecting this data to corresponding characterization of plasma and urine, and furthermore an assessment of diet-related compositional changes in colonic microbiota from human interventions. VTT also offers its customers an analysis of the satiating properties of food products.
