[Doctoral Course] Food and Nutrition Science

Characteristics of Food Processing

Food processing Professor
Yasuyuki Takeda
We investigate details of physicochemical changes, processing properties and influences to human health of fermented milk products through the analysis of the ecology and the functional characteristics of the relating lactic acid bacteria and aim to produce high value-adding fermenting milk products.
Yasuhiro Funatsu
We develop a novel food material that combines heterologous muscle protein for the purpose of effective use of underutilized water livestock resources. We analyze the gelling properties by several aspects such as rheological characteristics, protein analysis, and fine structure.
Food Physics Professor
Isamu Kaneda
We study physicochemical properties of food as soft matter by mainly using rheological method. The subject of our research is hydrogel and concentrated colloidal dispersions.

Nutrition Chemistry

Shuichi Onodera
1) Study on the creation of functional oligosaccharides using the glycosyltransferase
2) Genetic engineering research of oligosaccharide related enzymes
3) Search for new functional food ingredient and their impact on the body
Food Function Biochemistry Professor
Tomohiro Iwasaki
Research on the food functions for the muscle plasticity,hypertrophy and prevention of atrophy using biochemical and molecular biological and histological methods.

Health and Nutrition 

Health and Nutrition Professor
Katsuki Otani
1) Basic research on antioxidant functions of food materials and development of new functional foods
2) Research on the roles and mechanisms of antioxidant dietary materials in living organisms
Tomoko Suga
We will pursue the achievement of the SDGs goals of “Health and Welfare for All,” “Zero Hunger,” “End Poverty,” “Peace and Justice for All,” “Achieve Gender Equality,” and “End Inequality among People and Nations.” In light of these goals, research on the relationship between domestic violence, sexual violence, interpersonal violence and animal abuse are preferred.
Taichi Yamaguchi
