Research field Animal Products

The institute APN is connected to the successional research field food science via the primary production of animal products (milk, meat, eggs). The quality of animal products regarding nutrition physiology, the food processing properties as well as the safety of the primary products (especially in respect of residues, contaminants, etc.) further connects APN with the research field of human nutrition. From APN’s point of view, animal products are the final output of the physiological metabolism in livestock, which is driven by systematic feeding regimes to provide the quality and safety postulated by food science and human nutrition.
