Designing resilient organic greenhouse production systems for Europe: updates from the first half of the GREENRESILIENT project

During the last decade, there has been a strong discussion about the principles of organic farming, driven primarily by the differences in organic production systems in Europe. Some systems are highly intensified and focus on high economic sustainability whereas others focus on increasing biodiversity and implementing agroecological principles.…

How does grass protein affect meat quality?

In production experiments, an increasing amount of clover grass protein was added to the feed for broilers and slaughter pigs. The purpose of this is to find a more sustainable alternative to e.g. soy protein. A group of researchers from Aarhus University examined this.

Brazilian by-products transformed into food

When we eat a cashew nut, we might not be aware of the fact that the ‘nut’ it is just a small part of the cashew fruit. When we buy coconut water, we may not think about what happened to the rest of the coconut. Many crops, especially fruits, go partly to waste. In cooperation with Brazilian researchers, researchers from Aarhus University will…

Milk and meat to be grown in petri dishes

Can you produce milk without a cow – or meat without animals? Researchers from Aarhus University will investigate this in a new research project that will pave the way for a more sustainable food production.

Senior researcher Troels Kristensen from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University, discussed how dairy production can be increased, while sustainability and climate are taken into consideration. Photo: Lise Bundgaard.

Long-life lactose-free milk is exposed to challenges in relation  to shelf-life, stability and quality, including taste and appearance, when stored unrefrigerated for a longer period, which is the case in many parts of the world. Researchers from Aarhus University are currently studying how so-called lactase enzymes – enzymes added to lactose-free UHT milk, in order for people suffering from lactose intolerance to be able to drink it – affect the milk, and if these can be improved.

New and cleaner enzymes to improve the quality of long-life lactose-free milk

Long-life milk (ultra-high-temperature (UHT) processed milk) is a growing global market. However, especially long-life lactose-free milk is exposed to challenges in relation to shelf-life, stability and quality, including taste and appearance, when stored unrefrigerated for a longer period, which is the case in many parts of the world.…
