Research Project 2


Development of Functional Food and Effective Use of Undeveloped Resources after Food Processing:

Our integrated research perspectives spanning pharmaceutical, food and nutritional sciences will focus on the following issues: a) the search for medicinal seeds from food materials, b) the development of functional food containing edible antibodies aiming at oral passive immunization, and c) the prevention of cancer and allergic diseases through appropriate food choice. Here, some of Shizuoka’s local specialties, tea tree seeds, tangerine peels and zest, and Wasabi (Wasabia japonica) leaves will be utilized as representative undeveloped resources.
