The main objective of our Research Division is to provide scientific data to improve health and well-being and to enhance the development of food better adapted to humans. Studies lie in a compromise between individual well-being and economic and socio-professional realities. The division also aims at organising a scientific community in the area of food-borne chemical risk.

The Nutrition, chemical food safety and consumer behaviour Division has organised its research activities around four main research fields:

  • Sensory processes and consumer eating behaviour
  • The digestive function: understanding the relationship between food, digestive content and the intestinal wall
  • Food and nutrition: metabolic effects and consequences on health
  • Food toxicology - food safety
