The partners carried out the technical tasks of the project in close cooperation. The stability tests of the essential oil of horseradish as well as the examinations of antifungal activity were performed in similar cooperation. The Norwegian partner performed the experiments for the algaecide spectrum by using the essential oil of horseradish.

1., Production technology of horseradish essential oil from the secondary roots of horseradish. In addition to essential oil, horseradish paste, proven to be free of allyl isothiocyanate, and water, saturated with horseradish essential oil and exerting biological activity, are generated as by-products during the process. The tests carried out on these substances showed potential applications of them.

A patent has been applied for the technology of production.

2., Production technology of horseradish peroxidase (HRPO). Horseradish peroxidase with a purity complying with the factory standards can be produced from secondary roots – with parameters similar as in the case of main roots – using this technology developed by us.
