Dr. Proctor's laboratory addresses basic and applied research problems related to food oils, fats and associated products, including the development of lipid-based functional foods. The vision of the research program is to develop innovative research approaches to enhance the health-promoting properties of vegetable oil products for use in food, feed and pharmaceutical applications.

Research Goals:

  1. Develop novel processing methods to enhance food and nutritional properties of vegetable oils.
  2. Develop novel functional foods from nutritionally desirable oils.
  3. Establish the safety and stability of novel nutritionally desirable oils and functional foods.
  4. Determine the composition and nutritional effectiveness of novel oils and functional foods.
