Research Location UPV
Research Description The project is proposing a hyphothesis that sick people (or those with impaired immune system); should have their body functions and metabolism focus and divert most of its energy, in addressing and repairing what is wrong with the body. Given the opportunity, the human body could heal and repair itself. In line with this thought, the body should not spend so much energy in the process of digestion. This could be done by the provision of simple, easy to digest foods of complete nutrition, int the form of peptides.
Research Objectives To develop products from marine resources, such as fish and mollusks that are easily digestible with full nutrition, for target clients.
