Food Analytics
The major components of food products and basic materials can be examined by classic analytic methods. These investigations provide a complex view of food quality.

 

Our main research areas in the field of food analytics:

  • Investigation of the change in food products initiated by processing methods, determination of prebiotic carbohydrate chain degradation under thermal treatment, suggesting plausible chain degradation mechanism.
  • Analytical method developments to determine and investigate toxic and beneficial microelement composition in food products.
  • Chromatographic method developments to investigate pesticide, mycotoxin and biogenic amine content.
  • Extraction method developments for the isolation of bioactive components from plant materials.
  • Method development for the determination of accurate antioxidant activities in natural food components.
  • Method developments for the investigation of bioactive components in herbs and spices.
  • Investigations of natural aroma components, phenolic components, colour compounds and microelement content in wines.
  • Near infrared (NIR) method developments for the determination of main components in food products.
  • Gas-chromatographic method developments for the investigation of fatty-acid composition of food products, determination of trans-fatty acid content.
  • Chromatographic method developments for the determination of protein content and amino-acid distribution of food components.
  • Investigation of the possible use of water- and fat soluble vitamins and food additives in functional food products.
  • Analytical method developments for the determination of bioactive components in honey and propolis.
  • Investigation of grapevine buds

    The report on spring frost damage of grapevine buds in Eger was prepared by the Food and Research Centre of the Eszterházy Károly University

  • 2nd WINETWORK Technical Working Group Meeting

    The professional competition and conference entitled „Eszterházy Károly Viticulture and Oenology Days” was organized in Eger 15-16 February 2016.

  • Opening Conference – 2016 – The Year of Young Hungarian Entrepreneurs

    The opening conference of „2016 – The Year of Young Hungarian Entrepreneurs” was organized in the House of Hungarians. The event aimed to inform young Hungarian entrepreneurs living abroad about the future agenda of the program and opportunities offered by the Hungarian Government.

  • WINETWORK Technical Working Group Meeting

    The first meeting of the Technical Working Group representing the Eger wine region in the WINETWORK project was organized in Eger on 5th November 2015.

  • Professional network at an international level

    The Hungarian Development Center has prepared an interview about the WINETWORK project of the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The project is based on the cooperation of 11 partners representing 7 European countries including the Food and Wine Research Centre of the Eszterházy Károly University of Applied Sciences, Hungary.

  • Development of the Knowledge Centres of the University

    Due to a successful project proposal of the University, new research groups are formed in the fields of viticulture and plant protection, food science and oenology, landscape ecology and GIS, IT and quality assurance in addition to rural development. The project aims to increase the R+D potential of the Tokaj wine region.

  • WINETWORK kick-off meeting

    The aim of the WINETWORK project, in which the EGERFOOD Regional Knowledge Centre, Eszterházy Károly College will also participate, is to build a network for the exchange and transfer of innovative knowledge between European wine-growing regions to increase the productivity and sustainability of the sector.

  • Success at the XXXIIth National Scientific Students’ Associations Conference

    The Biology section of the XXXIIth National Scientific Students’ Associations Conference was organized at the University of Pécs 8th-10th April 2015. During these 3 days the lectures of 217 students from 18 different institutes were presented. The Bachelor, Master and PhD students presented their results to the panel of experts and to the further participants.
