Publisher

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Seaweeds are regarded as a valuable source of vitamins, minerals, polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein, and dietary fibres. In this context, there has been an increasing demand for sustainable, locally produced, seaweed-based food products.

This project will investigate the effect of processing methods, and storage time and conditions (e.g. room temperature and/or fridge) in the nutritional composition, content of bioactive compounds, and microbiology of different seaweed products (dried, smoked, fresh/salad, and fermented seaweed, and seaweed-based pesto) produced and commercialised in Denmark.

Goal: Evaluate (and possibly extend) the shelf life of processed seaweed products kept/stored according to the manufacturer specification.

Main activities: Literature review concerning composition and shelf-life assessment of seaweed products, performing chemical analysis (analytic techniques) and classic microbiology techniques, treatment and analysis of data, and writing masters project report (the student will also have the opportunity to contribute to the publication of research articles if he/she so desires).
