Mission Statement

How nature shaped human food - how food shaped human nature

Five theses the self-concept of our group is based on

  • Chemistry is everything: Chemistry is the basis of all molecular sciences.
  • Food chemistry forms the molecular background to understand food in its entirety and its interactions with the human body.
  • Food chemistry is science at the interfaces of biology, medicine and engineering.
  • Foods are biological systems. Nothing in biology makes sense, except in the light of evolution (T. Dobzhansky, 1973).
  • Nutrition, environment, health: food chemistry will make substantial contributions to meet these global challenges.
