The advanced research in enzymology, microbiota, molecular genetics, bioprocess and encapsulation technology leading to understand their interaction mechanisms and effective upstream and downstream production. These outputs will provide the high quality products affecting human health in the future.


International research cooperation programs with oversea universities and institutes such as CIRAD institute, ENITA institute, BOKU University of Natural Resources & Applied Life Sciences, Kyushu University, and University of Helsinki allow the exchanges of both researchers and Ph.D. students in training and research experiences of the specific area.

In order to distribute our knowledge, national seminar covering the hot issues of probiotics and prebiotics presented by both oversea guest speakers and our staff have been planned to organize each year as well.
