While there is a wealth of peer-reviewed publications available relating to the benefits of seaweed extracts (in excess of 3,000 for fucoidan alone), Nutramara have commenced a proprietary testing program exploring ingredients produced via the novel Nutramara process.

 

Phase 1 is evaluating a suite of bioactivities related to key physiological systems utilising state-of- the-art in cell models’ protein and genomic technologies. This will be followed by human studies (phase 2) to further explore Nutramara ingredient efficacies in vivo.

 

Nutramara also has sister companies in the west of Ireland, where in-depth macro & micro algae research is taking place. One such project includes the cultivation of seaweeds on long lines and in tanks to ensure future sustainability & traceability of supply.

 

It is through these collaborations that Nutramara aims to push the boundaries of science to innovate for the future, creating products of superior quality from the sea.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][mkdf_elements_holder_item background_image=”5054″ item_padding_680_768=”140px 80px 140px 60px” item_padding_680=”140px 80px 140px 60px”][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][/mkdf_elements_holder][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mkdf_elements_holder holder_full_height=”no” number_of_columns=”two-columns” switch_to_one_column=”1024″ alignment_one_column=””][mkdf_elements_holder_item background_image=”5087″ item_padding_680_768=”140px 80px 140px 60px” item_padding_680=”140px 80px 140px 60px”][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][mkdf_elements_holder_item item_padding_768_1024=”26px 0px 0px 60px” item_padding_680_768=”30px 0px 30% 50px” item_padding_680=”30px 20px 30px 20px” item_padding=”90px 10% 99px 140px” background_color=”#ededed” item_padding_1024_1366=”60px 40px 60px 60px”][vc_single_image image=”5068″][mkdf_section_title position=”” title_tag=”h3″ disable_break_words=”no” title=”RESEARCH PARTNERS”][vc_column_text]Shannon ABC identifies innovative ingredients and biological products from natural resources using novel state-of-the-art processes to obtain lead molecules for drug development and value added food, flavour and health products. The Centre has a strong history of collaboration with industry in the area of bioactive compounds, as well as the broader Irish biotechnology sector, and was established through funding co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Applied Research Enhancement (ARE) Program.

 

Teagasc, the Agriculture and Food Development Authority, is the national body providing integrated research, advisory and training services to the agriculture and food industries and rural communities. It was established in September 1988 under the Agriculture (Research, Training and Advice) Act, 1988.

 

BEACON Bioeconomy Research Centre is developing sustainable novel processes and products using biobased resources, creating clusters for new industry partnerships and delivering the expertise and trained workforce to translate new technologies into new sustainable products, processes, markets and industries.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][vc_single_image image=”5056″ img_size=”full”][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][/mkdf_elements_holder][/vc_column][/vc_row]
