With a strong commitment in improving quality assurance and extraction methodologies, we, at FlaNat Research, are continuously investing in research and innovation to obtain plant extracts with the unique characteristics that mother nature is always able to provide.
 
Continuous Research and Development, in co-operation with major european and world-wide universities, is the base of our business. Our offer does not include only standardized extracts but also support to formulate finished products and development of new products: because what we know is never enough of what the nature can offer us. Special methodologies of analysis have been developed with European University researchers in order to be constantly updated with the latest plants activities and extraction processes.

  FlaNat Research will bioprospecting a new variety of purple corn, cultivated in Italy, and all its waste matrix from agro-industry process. Organic organic solvents free extraction protocols will be used and compared: PEF (Pulsed Electric Fields) - molecular resonance (increased mobility) – water solvent (adaptive waters) - Micro and Ultra-filtration. The waste matrix will be processed using Biotechnology such microorganisms that convert biomass into phyto-compositions-Enzymes to facilitate the extraction of the plant matrix.

PRIME
Functional ingredients from vegetable matrices obtained from processing waste of purple corn to beneficial effect on the glucidic and lipid metabolism.
   
  The activity in support of the glucidic and lipid metabolism of purple corn extract will be investigated by the University of Pavia analyzing the expression of markers involved in glucose metabolism and the gene expression profile of pro-inflammatory markers. Such analysis will be carried out using both enzymatic assays and in vitro tests on specific cell lines.

PASTEL
Develop a BIO-BASED MODEL to replace synthetic dyeing materials and mordants by using specific pigmented wastes coming from corn cobs as sources of anthocyanins and tannins for textile production.
   
  FlaNat Research will implement pre-industrial scale testing equipment, in order to evaluate the economic feasibility of large-scale extraction of pigments from pigmented cob pre-treated fermented extract.
