Ali(medica)menta® is a interdisciplinary research platform (network) within the Department of Drug Science and Technology at the University of Turin aimed to synergically combine different disciplines and expertise around healthy food topics, mainly vegetal products and their quality and safety.
The platform offers expertise and facilities to study the different aspects along the food transformation chain by focusing on bio-active components (nutrients, secondary metabolites, nutraceuticals and sensory active compounds).
In particular, the research activities deal with the most recent innovation and technological achievements in the extraction/preparation of vegetal raw materials, removal of undesirable components, valorization and modification of food composition and development of novel products.
Consistent with the expanded role for Pharmacists in Public Health, special attention is paid to the correlation between Food and Health helping to promote healthy diets and lifestyles.
