Come to an inaugural lecture and learn how better utilization of marine resources can help to feed the world’s population. 

The World Health Organization, WHO, expects that the world’s population will grow from 7 billion today to 9.5 billion by 2050. In order to feed the many mouths, it will among other things be necessary for us to better utilize marine resources – including seaweed, fish and micro algae.

This calls for research on how by-products from the seafood industry can be used to produce fish oil and protein, as well as how seaweed and micro algae can be used for production of proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and pigments for the food and feed industries.

Healthy omega-3 fatty acids are sensitive to oxygen during processing and storage. Oxygen can make them rancid, which gives them an unpleasant taste and smell. New technologies such as methods to encapsulate fatty acids are needed to protect against oxidation.

Charlotte Jacobsen’s inaugural lecture entitled ’Healthy marine ingredients for a growing population’ will present examples from the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark’s research in these areas. She will illustrate how multiple ingredients can be extracted from the same marine raw material and how antioxidants from seaweed can protect fish oil enriched foods from oxidation.
