Clinical trials for testing safety and functionality of food products
The BioCC LLC offers a possibility for enterprises to get up-to-date, science-based and truthful information and consultations for safety, tolerability and health –promoting effect of foodstuffs.
The service includes three-levels testing of foodstuffs, from which the most suitable can be chosen.
1. Safety testing of the (functional) food product
2. Tolerability and safety testing of the (functional) food product on healthy volunteers during a human intervention trial.
3. Efficacy and safety (and tolerability) testing of the (functional) food product.
The study design, and markers measured, will be selected depending on the specific features of the particular product.
Testing of food products is carried out in the Laboratory for Clinical and Physiological Research of the BioCC LLC (Riia 181a, Tartu, Estonia). We work in close collaboration with Tartu University Hospital.
