Self introduction

I'm from Otaru city in Hokkaido. I love swimming and scuba diving. I've studied functional effects of food components for human health. I have just started to apply them for food processing and develop health foods.

Introduction

I'm focusing on effects on characteristics (texture, color, storage stability, lipid oxidation etc...) of meat products by addition of functional food compounds. Additionally, the products can be possible to play an important role for human health. I aim to develop attractive meat products meet both the needs.
