THE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE OF THE REPUBLIC OF LATVIA EXPRESSES ITS SUPPORT FOR NORDIC FOOD RESEARCH

The Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Latvia has supported the Nordic Food initiative for the development of novel foods based on the use of plant stem cells in food. The Ministry of Agriculture notes that the use of plant stem cells in food is a major innovation.

Nordic Food innovation concept is to enrich the food with plant stem cells. The most important advantage of plant stem cells is the concentration of plant active substances in a relatively small
the amount, which would enhance the functional effect of products in food production without
significantly altering their existing organoleptic composition.

In medicine, this regenerative or regenerative therapy is called future medicine, which has already produced promising results in cases of severe pathology. Plant stem cells have been studied and
actively used in cosmetics, where their essential functional effects on human skin have been demonstrated. Nordic Food explores and applies this discovery to the food industry.

The Ministry of Agriculture welcomes the initiative of Latvian scientists in the development of a
novel food and believes that the use of plant stem cells in food has potential in the future.
