• An advance in the breeding of Prunus fruit species

    Since 2011, the number of publications on the genetic determinism of traits of agronomic interest in Prunus species (peach, plum, apricot, cherry, etc.) has doubled.  The markers associated with the genes that control targeted traits can thus be used for breeding programmes.

  • Milk powders

    INRA is positioned as an essential actor in French research on milk powders, which has been one of its scientific priorities for many years, in close interaction with inter-branch organisations and companies in the dairy industry

  • Satellites to monitor the health of forests

    Monitoring the health status of forest populations by remote sensing requires development of the diagnosis of decline.  In a collaborative context, researchers from the Joint Research Unit for Forest Dynamics in Rural Environments (DYNAFOR), the National Centre for Forest Owners (CNPF) and the Institute for Forest Development (IDF) are proposing to monitor the dynamics of the decline of silver fir in the Pyrenees region, based on remote sensing time series analyses.

  • A major innovation in the field of dairy and pea proteins

    A functional ingredient with particularly interesting textural, viscosity and solubility properties has been developed by assembling pea proteins and dairy proteins.  This process is now protected by a patent filed by INRA and its two industrial partners, ROQUETTE and INGREDIA.

  • Improving the nutritional quality of breakfast cereals

    The nutritional quality of two of the eight categories of breakfast cereals studied has improved, as they now contain less sodium and sugar.

  • Tomato cuticle, a potential  source of surfactant molecules

    Tomato skin - or cuticle -  is a biopolymer that has attracted the interest of INRA research teams.  After investigating the polymerisation of this biocomposite, the team focused on  the functionalisation of cutin monomers for applications in green chemistry.
