Protein-Polyphenol Mix Creates Shelf-stable, Natural Ingredient

November 22, 2016

Astronauts, protein bars and the development of natural ingredients may not seem to have a connection. In the laboratory of Mary Ann Lila, PhD, director of the NC State University Plants for Human Health Institute (PHHI) at the NC Research Campus, they are all part of one project. Lila and her research team completed a […]

Raising the Bar: NCSU’s Protein-Polyphenol Mix Creates Soft, Shelf-stable, Protein-packed Functional Foods

May 18, 2016

NASA plans to have humans on Mars by 2036, which means they need to figure out how to feed astronauts and keep them healthy for the three-year round-trip without weighing down the spacecraft. Mary Ann Lila, PhD, director of the NC State University Plants for Human Health Institute (PHHI) at the NC Research Campus, has […]

Potential Biomarkers for Crohn’s Disease Advance Diabetes Research

August 31, 2015

A scientist based at the NC Research Campus helped identify potential protein biomarkers for sub-types of Crohn’s disease. The discovery is also advancing research into biomarkers for type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune disorders.   Many people may not link type 1 diabetes (T1D) and Crohn’s Disease. Qibin Zhang, PhD, co-director of the UNC Greensboro […]

Turbocharge Your Food- Excercising Ups Nutrient Absorption from Berries, Tea

July 15, 2014

As published in the Dole Nutrition Institute’s July 2014 newsletter. “Gut permeability,” “leaky colon,” “hot gut”– none of these terms conjure up conditions you’d think to put on your wish list.  The colon carries digested food away from the stomach and towards the exit, so “leaking” would be the very last thing you’d want your […]
