Enhancing Nutrition Through Science - Naturally

Recommend a Fruit or Vegetable for Testing


Galectin-3 inhibitors are common in a variety of natural foods. It is probably true that every edible fruit or plant has some level of natural galectin-3 inhibitors. However, both the amount and nature of these compounds differ markedly. We aim to find fruits and vegetables that have high levels of the most active galectin-3 inhibitors. We also plan to study how to best prepare these foods to get the most health benefit. 


After testing a variety of fruits and vegetables we can be more systematic in our screening - anticipating where best to look for these natural inhibitors.  We have developed specialized tests to do so. 

 

Growers associations, food processors, food scientists or individuals are welcome to recommend fruits and vegetables for testing.  You can fill out the form below or contact us at info@pectacea.com.
