The research center in Nutrition is an organ of research basic-applied of the University of Navarra, attached to the School of Pharmacy and Nutrition. It carries out a research of excellence in topics related to Nutrition and Health, specifically with the problems of obesity.

It transfers to the industry, especially the food and pharmaceutical industry, the results of the research in order to improve its productivity and support the development of new food products. In addition, it offers industry services related to the areas of nutrition, dietetics, and food in general.

Results of the ALINFA study

The results of the ALINFA Study confirm that improved nutritional status is reflected in the metabolome and is related to adherence to the per diem expenses Mediterranean diet.

The project ALINFA, arose from the need to ensure healthy, affordable and accessible food for children. In fact, it was funded within the call for strategic projects of the Government of Navarra (2019). The ALINFA consortium was led by Irigoyen Comedor Saludable S.L., and was also formed by core topic companies from the food sector, such as group APEX, Harivenasa, Industria Alimentaria de Navarra (IAN) and Sanygran, as well as by the Public University of Navarra, CNTA and the University of Navarra.

In the last two publications arising from the research at the research center in Nutrition (CIN) of the University of Navarra, whose last author is Dr. Santiago Navas-Carretero, researcher of the CIN and member of the group CIBEROBN led by Dr. María Jesús Moreno, conclusions are drawn on two different aspects of child nutrition.

In the first, published in the Revista Children, we explored the influence of Degree of adherence to the ALINFA nutritional intervention on the improvement of the dietary patron saint of schoolchildren. Based on a questionnaire on adherence to the Mediterranean per diem expenses validated for children (KIDMED), the dietary patron saint was evaluated at the beginning and at the end of the intervention. In addition, the Degree adherence of the schoolchildren to the ALINFA intervention was analyzed (the cut-off point was 75% of the prescribed total energy intake). With these two factors, two groups of high and leave adherence to the intervention, the quality of the per diem expenses, and the improvement of the quality of the per diem expenses according to adherence were identified. Although all participants improved their quality of per diem expenses, those who already started from a higher quality of per diem expenses at baseline experienced a greater improvement in their nutritional status.

The second article, the result of Naroa Andueza's doctoral thesis defended in November 2023, whose directors were Dr. Marta Cuervo Zapatel and Dr. Santiago Navas-Carretero, consisted of analyzing the metabolites present in the urine of schoolchildren who received the ALINFA intervention to evaluate the quality and compliance with the per diem expenses through biomarkers. The main conclusion was that the changes observed in the metabolome of schoolchildren in the ALINFA intervention demonstrate its effectiveness towards a healthier per diem expenses , reducing the indicators associated with a higher consumption of red meat and foods high in saturated fats.

Sustainability and Health

Itziar Ariz Hernandez. PhD. candidate. research center in Nutrition. department de Food Science and Physiology. School of Pharmacy and Nutrition. University of Navarra.

Sustainability and health are current issues that are a major factor in the food industry's development of new products development . In this framework, the consumption of meat analogues based on vegetable proteins is a growing trend. However, the implications of this substitution from a nutritional point of view need to be carefully studied. In this work the composition of classic (beef) hamburgers and ready-to-eat vegan hamburgers was compared. In addition, the effect of digestion on fat, protein and the potential antioxidant capacity of both types of products has been studied.

Dr. Katherine Gutiérrez-Luna. area Bioactive Compounds and Functional Foods

The importance of fiber intake for health has led the food industry to design new ingredients that increase the amount of fiber in the per diem expenses. In the case of bakery products, normally rich in digestible carbohydrates, an interesting strategy is the use of ingredients that increase the presence of the so-called resistant starch, i.e. those Structures of starch that cannot be digested by digestive enzymes and that behave in final as fiber.

parte-2

Our work, carried out on the framework of project ALMIGLUC, has shown the high sensitivity of most of the ingredients rich a priori in resistant starch, to the manufacturing processes of bakery-bollería products and the interest of controlling the final contents of resistant starch to ensure the potential health effects of the presence of this compound subject . Hi Maize flour is one of the ingredients currently known to suffer the lowest losses in resistant starch content during processing conditions. The project ALMIGLUC has been funded by the department of development Economic and Business of the Government of Navarra (Call for grants to carry out projects of research and development 2022) and in partnership with the companies HARINERA DEL MAR and MONBAKE group EMPRESARIAL S.A.U.
