Approved Project Title: Slowly digestible, high antioxidant sorghum: a new wholegrain food paradigm to help combat type 2 diabetes

2010: $30,000.00  |  2011: $60,000.00  |  2012 : $60,000.00  |  2013 : $30,000.00

Partner/Collaborating Organisation(s) : George Weston Foods Ltd, Sanitarium Health Food Ltd

Administering Organisation : Curtin University of Technology

Project Summary: This project has the potential to lead to benefits to several sectors of the community. Government and consumers will benefit by new sorghum foods helping to reduce diabetes, heart disease and obesity and the economic and quality of life burden of these diseases; health professionals will benefit through availability of new food products to recommend for disease risk reduction and control; food processors will benefit through new value added healthy food products for both the domestic and export markets and sorghum growers will benefit through a new opportunity to produce sorghum grain for higher value markets.

Project Summary: Project outcomes will improve management of coastal biodiversity through a multi-state collaboration of managers, marine ecologists, population geneticists and taxonomists. Sites most needed within marine protected area (MPA) networks for maintaining resilience of populations across seascapes will be identified, including sites with exceptional endemism or key roles in dispersal of larvae. The ecological efficacy of the temperate Australian MPA network will be assessed through analysis of long-term ecological datasets and further development of a novel 'remote sensing' methodology, whereby surveys are undertaken by volunteer divers across much greater spatial and temporal scales than could be studied by dedicated scientific dive teams.
