Research Focus

Part 1:  Research topics related to red mold fermented products:
    Monascus-fermented products have been used in food, medicine, and industry dates back over a thousand years in Asia countries. Monascus-fermented products contained several bioactive metabolites such as the pigments, polyketide monacolins, dimerumic acid, and γ-aminobutyric acid. Scientific reports showed that Monascus-fermented products proved to be effective for the management of blood cholesterol, diabetes, blood pressure, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease and prevention of cancer development. Those are our research points related to red mold fermented products.
Part 2:  Research topics related to lactic acid bacteria:
    Lactic acid bacteria have showed to possess antimutagenic, anticarcinogenic, and hypocholesterolemic properties. Further, they were also observed to have antagonistic actions against intestinal and food-borne pathogens, to decrease the prevalence of allergies in susceptible individuals, and to have immunomodulatory effects. Typically, the bacteria colonise the intestinal tract first and then reinforce the host defense systems by inducing a generalised mucosal immune response, balanced T-helper cell response, self-limited inflammatory response, and secretion of polymeric IgA. Scientific reports showed that the Taiwan native lactic acid bacterium from newborn infant feces identified as Lactobacillus paracasei subsp. paracasei NTU 101 and its’fermented products proved to be effective for the management of blood cholesterol and pressure, prevention of gastric mucosal lesion development, immunomodulation and alleviation of allergies, anti-osteoporosis and inhibition the fat tissue accumulation. Those are our research points related to lactic acid bacteria.
