Grain and oil science and engineering research team applied grain and oil as the research object, with the characteristics of organic integration of science, engineering, agriculture, medicine and other related disciplines, forming the staple food, coarse cereals and plant oils as main starting base materials, carry out the research on depth theory and application by modern high and new technologies. The researches including development of grain, plant protein products, and industrialization of the staple food; chemical and engineering of functional carbohydrate components, protein and so on; efficient extraction, separation and identification of cereals active ingredients; molecular nutrition of staple food and coarse cereals.
The research team cooperated with the well-known domestic and international enterprises, developed deep processing and comprehensive utilization of agricultural by-products as well as for the commercialization of specified types of products. The developed non-cold chain staple food production technology greatly reduces the cost of production, improves the food safety, acquires breakthrough especially in improving the shelf life and food quality of food products. A number of research achievements fulfilled identification at the national, provincial and ministerial level, and the industrialization put into practice. To date the team has undertaken the national natural science funds and the ministry of science and technology of China-EU cooperation projects and the ministry of science and Technology agriculture transformation fund and so on, standing at the international leading level.
