Development of a novel FUNctional food enriched with β-glucans isolated from edible mushrooms of Greek habitats. The aim of the project is to characterize the health-promoting properties of edible Greek mushrooms of high β-glucan content in order to develop novel functional food products aimed at preventing pathologies and improving the quality of life of the general population, the elderly in particular. The development of functional products meeting the consumers’ nutritional needs while at the same time improving their health is an important pillar of the company EI PAPADOPOULOS S.A. which holds a leading position in the Greek bakery market.
