Low gluten foods
This two-page information sheet is about CSIRO research into developing low gluten barley. This is the first step towards providing the Australian public with a range of low gluten products.
Native plants and forestry
CSIRO studies Australian native plants to better understand their variety, needs and role in contemporary ecosystems.
Omega-3 oils in grains
CSIRO has developed plants that produce DHA, a healthy omega-3 oil component, reducing pressure on declining fish resources worldwide and providing Australian grain growers with new high-value crops.
CSIRO has developed plants that produce DHA, a healthy omega-3 oil component normally only available from fish sources.
Sustainable food manufacturing
Food manufacturers who respond effectively to climate change will have the advantage of being at the forefront of a new consumer trend - sustainably manufactured foods.
Improving tiger prawn farming
Captive breeding techniques could grow better quality tiger prawns and achieve higher income for Australian farmers.
Protecting crops against Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus
Plants with total immunity to the devastating Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus could be a step closer thanks to breeding of resistant species and the creation of a synthetic gene primed to recognise the virus and destroy it. (2 pages)
