Strengths of Health Capital Helsinki

Food

The University of Helsinki has over a 100-year history of research and teaching in food science and nutrition. Expertise located at the Viikki Campus is centered on food production chains, food quality and healthy nutrition, as well as global nutrition.

Research in food science has changed our views on nutrition and has generated both entrepreneurship and unique innovations, as demonstrated by the products ‘pulled oats’ and the broad-bean based ‘Härkis’, two excellent vegan substitutes for meat.
