The exploration of bioactive secondary metabolites Secondary metabolites in plants are small molecules with other functions than structural properties. Many such metabolites have already been proved to possess valuable bioactivity in relation to human physiology. It is estimated that less than 5 % have been researched so far.
Therefore, such compounds derived from plants are still a hugely unexplored treasure chest of potentially ingenuous solutions to physiological problems.
Asiros A/S has made it a primary goal to become a world leader in the exploration and utility of secondary metabolites from edible plants for the benefit of human health.
