Career to date
For more than 25 years I have been working with analytical, nutritional and health aspects of carbohydrates in feed and food. I have been involved in the development of modern analytical techniques that enable a full characterisation of the carbohydrate fraction in feed- and foodstuffs and performed a number of basic nutritional studies on surgically modified pigs and sows where emphasis has been on digestion and absorption of carbohydrates. This knowledge has been used proactive in dietary intervention studies where emphasis has been on prevention of digestive disturbances in piglets, establishment of parasites in growing pigs, and improvements of satiety and behaviour in sows. Additionally, I have been studying nutritional and health aspects of phytochemicals with emphasis of plant lignans in monogastric species.
