Flavours and Metabolites

The Laboratory for Flavours and Metabolites researches and analyses food quality and plant health: With the aid of state-of-the-art analytical methods, it characterises and quantifies naturally occurring compounds in agricultural produce (apple, apple juice, grapes, wine, cheese, milk) and parts of plants (leaves, roots, wood).

Equipped with cutting-edge technology and instruments including high resolution mass spectrometers, the laboratory features the latest technical standards and makes a key contribution to the environmental and food sciences research projects at NOI Techpark, South Tyrol's new technology park.


Our research projects include the following:

  • food sciences at NOI Techpark (chemical analysis)
  • environmental sciences at NOI Techpark
  • PinotBlanc
  • avoiding DPA residues in fruit storage cells
