new Project - „PorridgePlus" 

February 20, 2014. STUTTGART. The Federal Ministry of Economics (BMWi) supports in frame of the ZIM-initiative a project called PorridgePlus (KF3204601). The aim of the project is to develop a food product for elderly with the objective to promote healthy brain aging. The basis for the project are findings that Rice Bran Extract protects from mitochondrial dysfunction in the brain. Mitochondrial dysfunction plays a major role in the development of age-related neurodegenerative diseases and recent evidences suggest that food ingredients can improve mitochondrial function. The Kick-off meeting held in Stuttgart launches the biennial project. Project partners are: Bernd Fiebich (Vivacell, Freiburg), Gerhard Fesenmeyer (FBFood, Villingen-Schwenningen), Gunter P. Eckert (Goethe-University of Frankfurt), and Jan Frank (University of Hohenheim).
