Saioa has experience in the application of the Environmental Footprint in the food sector to identify potential improvement stretagies and reduce environmental impacts. Her work is also focused on the development of ad-hoc multicriteria tools for the implementation, calculation, verification and effective communication of the environmental footprint of food products
University of Barcelona
Associate professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Science and Gastronomy. Food and Nutrition Torribera Campus. University of Barcelona.
She belongs to the consolidated research group “Food Bioactive Compounds”. Her research mainly focuses on the study of bioactive amines in food. In recent years, she has also been dedicated to study new strategies to improve the safety and quality of fermented products through the revalorization of vegetable by-products of the food industry
University of Barcelona
Prof. Dr. M. Carmen Vidal Carou leads the consolidated research group "Food Bioactive Compounds". She has an extensive experience in the study of bioactive compounds in food and its effects on health, food quality and food safety. Her current focus is the reuse of plant by-products from the agri-food industry for safer and more environmentally friendly foods. She develops methodologies to integrate nutritional parameters into the assessment of environmental impacts along food value chains and is actively engaged in social studies on food knowledge and perceptions.
