Products for Health-Conscious Customers

Research on Food Functions Maintaining Health

The NISSIN FOODS Group has “Bi-ken Ken-shoku” (Eat wisely for beauty and health) as part of the philosophy of the founder. In 2015, the Health Science Research Division was established within the Global Innovation Center to analyze food functions based on the themes of health, nutrition, and physiological functions as well as to conduct cutting-edge research leading to delicious and innovative products.

Emphasis is especially placed on immunization research, aging care, and improving nutrition and metabolism. In fiscal 2020, a new function of psyllium seed husk-derived dietary fiber as well as salt receptor molecule (sodium channel) were presented at the Japan Society for Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Agrochemistry. In addition, three papers regarding new functions of psyllium and two papers regarding new functions of lactic acid bacteria were presented. Other than the above, as an initiative to promote research on the sense of taste, the NISSIN FOOD PRODUCTS also funds an endowed chair in Taste Science at the University of Tokyo Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
