Agri-food projects in Manitoba win funding

Researchers focusing on developing “functional foods” that can be used to improve health have received a total of $341,000 from the federal and provincial governments.

The three projects, coordinated by Manitoba’s Grain Innovation Hub, include evaluating food substitutes for cholesterol-lowering drugs, measuring the benefits of eating flaxseed for high blood pressure, and breeding novel buckwheat varieties with added health benefits.

The companies, and others involved in the projects, will contribute an additional $865,000.
