In the 21st century, the search for methods of treating noncommunicable diseases, such as obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes is one of among the top priorities. Prevention and treatment of these diseases include changing and controlling lifestyle, diet and the use of pharmaceuticals.
Worldwide focus meat analogs keeps increasing to start producing vegetable protein non-cholesterol products containing essential amino acids. Extrusion is the best way to texture vegetable proteins. This is a method of processing raw materials in which the destruction of secondary bonds in protein molecules occurs, thus increasing their digestibility.
The IKBFU “Functional nanomaterials” Research and Education center physicists demonstrated how the active silver ions are being applied on masks by the magnetron deposition method. This manufacturing procedure is made because of the fact that silver is a unique anti-bacterial material.
