Objectives of the FFARMED project

The project aims to identify food constituents acting on free fatty acid receptors and study how these may exert beneficial or detrimental effects on the development of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and other metabolic diseases.

Selective receptor modulators will be developed and used as tools to study the roles of the FFARs in T2D in vitro and in vivo. Food constituents with specific activity on FFARs will be investigated further in clinical studies with healthy and diabetic individuals.

We anticipate that the project will provide new insight into the molecular effects of food constituents on T2D and thereby contribute to the development of improved diet plans, effective nutritional supplements and functional foods to assist the prevention and management of T2D and other metabolic diseases.
