Current Projects

Project Title: NSC - MultiProMo (High-Value Nutrition National Science Challenge)

As we age we lose muscle mass and function, and many older people find that muscle weakness limits their ability to stay physically mobile and remain independent. Protein and the amino acid leucine are the major nutrients required for muscle maintenance, and in this project we will research how to combine proteins together to improve digestibility and protein uptake for older people. Using this research, we will develop scientifically validated high-protein foods that help to support muscle maintenance in seniors while also meeting their flavour and texture preferences. Many countries, especially in New Zealand's major export markets in East Asia, are faced with ageing populations and skyrocketing healthcare costs. The high-protein muscle maintenance foods that we develop will be targeted towards seniors in China, and will contribute to improving the wellbeing of older Chinese as well as providing substantial export revenue to a New Zealand food manufacturer.
