Description
The IdiPAZ Food, Nutrition and Health Platform (NUTRinvest) is a structure created to provide scientific-technical service and support in Human Research and Specialized Advice in Nutrition and Food issues.
The Platform provide service of Specialized Advice in Nutrition and Food at 3 levels:
• Industries agro-food or pharmaceutical sector) interesting in the new products development with an improved nutritional profile.
• Companies interested in creating new technological tools to facilitate the acquisition of guidelines and healthy habits (web, app, etc.).
• Individual interested in knowing their nutritional status through a precision and individualized nutritional assessment.
Objetives
To implement clinical trials or epidemiological studies well designed in the area of human nutrition, in order to validate the activity and efficacy of bioactive compounds, nutrients, foods, dietary patterns or artificial nutrition, on different parameters related to the health promotion, the disease prevention or its therapeutic activity.
