Challenging the definition of “dietary fibre”
A proposal to redefine the internationally accepted definition of what constitutes “dietary fibre” will be questioned today in an address by senior CSIRO nutritionist Dr David Topping to the US Institute of Food Technologists’ Annual Meeting in Chicago.
Wheat quality in the spotlight
Eminent grains expert and molecular biologist Professor Rudi Appels has been awarded a Visiting Fellowship within the Food Futures Flagship to advance the application of genomics technologies for the selection and development of high quality grains, including wheat and barley.
Breeding better salmon
The Food Futures Flagship is improving the quality of Tasmanian Atlantic salmon through a selective breeding program.
Grains go on an even bigger ‘health kick’
A new generation of grain-based foods could soon play a major role in improving public health, according to one of Australia’s leading biologists, CSIRO’s Dr Matthew Morell.
Healthy partnership across the Tasman
Consumers, grain producers and the food industry will benefit from a new research alliance established to find improved ways of measuring the glycaemic response of grains, ingredients and processed foods.
Big boost for high fibre grains research
A $A12.7 million research alliance that plans to develop new grain varieties with tailored fibre content will be launched today at CSIRO’s Discovery Centre in Canberra.
Olfactory pattern recognition research cluster
The Food Futures Flagship is working with the Australian National University, Monash University and the University of Queensland to create a new generation of electronic nose - a Cybernose.
High Fibre Grains Collaboration Cluster
The High Fibre Grains Collaboration Cluster is developing new grain varieties and tailoring fibre content to optimise health benefits to consumers and value to industry.
Partnership developing new grain varieties
The High Fibre Grains collaboration cluster combines the research and capabilities of the University of Queensland, the University of Adelaide and the University of Melbourne with CSIRO's Food Futures National Research Flagship.
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.
Omega-3 oils in grain
This two-page information sheet describes how the Food Futures Flagship has developed plants that produce DHA, a healthy omega-3 oil component normally only available from fish sources.
Extracting ‘bioactives’ from agricultural and food processing streams
Transforming products from agricultural and food processing streams into health-enhancing ingredients for use in a variety of foods and nutraceuticals is the aim of a new $7 million Flagship Collaboration Fund Cluster involving CSIRO’s Food Futures Flagship, Monash University and the University of Melbourne.
Livestock virtually fenced in
A virtual fence for livestock that allows better use of pasture, protects the environment and reduces labour, is being developed by the CSIRO Food Futures Flagship using satellite technology.
