Bioavailability of minerals

General Objectives

The group’s activity is focused on nutrition and mineral and protein metabolism in experimental and human nutrition. This line of interaction between diet and health contemplates the digestion and metabolism of nutrients, as well as their repercussions on the nutritional status - always dependent on the individual’s own traits and the individual’s own diet. Research is directed towards the elucidation of the influence of thermal treatment on foodstuffs on the bioavailability of nutrients. The group is also analyzing the consequences of the consumption of such foods on health: the effect on the response to oxidative stress and its contribution in the development of degenerative illnesses.
