Iodised salt and milk are the main sources of I in human diets. However, organic milk is typically low in I and organic salt is not iodised. The project aims to identify and optimise the use of a sustainable seaweed supplement that is suitable for use in organic dairy cow diets, for the production of I-enriched organic milk. This will be achieved via animal trials, feed and milk analyses, and appropriate statistical modelling in the UK, Iceland, and Finland. The sustainable development of I-enriched organic milk can address the currently unmet nutritional need for I. Further implementation in conventional dairying can scale-up I-enriched milk production and benefit the greater population, particularly groups with higher I requirements (e.g. pregnant women, nursing mothers).
HarnessINg Seaweed to Produce Iodine-forRtifiEd organic milk (INSPIRE organic milk)
Iodine (I) deficiency is the greatest single cause of preventable brain damage, resulting in impaired intellectual ability and reduced school/work performance globally.
TRACOD – Model-based Tracking of Cod and Other Fish Value Chain for Consumer Confidence Boosting and Food Engineers Education
TRACOD – short for TRAck the COD fish, is an EIT Food project aimed at improving the ability of producers and consumers to track freshness and nutritional values of fresh fish, including cod, salmon, and other white fish species. TRACOD uses models implemented in an app for interacting with stakeholders and includes an education component for endowing food engineers with a systems approach. TRACOD also engages future food engineers in conceptual modeling as part of model-based systems engineering of food production and supply systems.
