The PHYTOME project (Phytochemicals to reduce nitrite in meat products) is a major EU co-funded research project that has started the first of December 2012 and aims to develop innovative meat products in which the food additive nitrite has been replaced by natural compounds originating from fruits and vegetables. These biologically active compounds, also referred to as phytochemicals, are known to contribute to improved gut health and are added to the meat as natural extracts.
Fenavian is a partner in this research project.
