Research Topics
  • Analysis of food lipid and fatty acids

    Recent animal studies indicate that dietary docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplements have been responsible for preventing certain forms of cancer and aging, and have been receiving increasingly much attention. In studies of marine food lipids, it has become obvious that fish and shellfish provide a unique source of n-3 PUFA, such as icosapentaenoic acid (IPA or EPA) and DHA which may be scarce in terrestrial organisms. However, the levels of IPA and DHA have not been determined in fish and shellfish species. We investigate the lipids and fatty acids of various marine species.

  • Studies of active and functional compounds in edible materials

    There is an urgent need for safe natural active compounds, such as antioxidants, ceramides, and plasmalogen type phospholipids, for food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical utilization. We have tried isolation of novel and effective compounds from marine organisms.
