Research and Development are one of the key pillars of Abyss Ingredients. Our R&D team aims at offering innovative and effective ingredients made from marine sustainable bioresources.
Abyss Ingredients works in close collaboration with scientific, academic and research partners to nurture its innovation and continually develop new ingredients of which efficacy is proved by science.
Two collaborative research projects are already underway:
Project BrainBooster (FUI) to boost cognitive health for seniors,
Project VIPP (Brittany Region -Europe Feder) for stress management.
BrainBooster is an innovative, scientific and sustainable project which aims to develop an ingredient from marine by-products to prevent age-related cognitive decline. BrainBooster was launched by three Breton companies, Abyss Ingredients, La Maison Chancerelle and Diana Pet Food ; and two French research laboratories, LEMAR (University of Brest) and NutriNeuro (University of Bordeaux). The total budget of this three-year-program is above 2,7 M € and supported by FUI funds.
VIPP objective is to identify and characterise bioactive peptides responsible for stress management in our ingredients. Thanks to this project, we will be able to develop new premium ingredients with very specific bioactive peptides dedicated to specific applications. This collaborative project is supported by the Brittany Region and Europe Feder funds.
