Fibre: The Rough with the smooth

 Registration is closed for this event
Organised by IFSTs Food Science & Nutrition Group

Following the successful Sugar - Friend or Foe, Big Fat Debate and Protein Power we move on to fibre which only recently has been considered a nutrient but has long been known to have dietary benefits.

This will once again be an interactive event and bring together a panel of experts to explore various regulatory, health and food formulation issues related to fibre in our diet.  It is easy to forget that the term ‘dietary fibre’ today applies to a somewhat heterogeneous assortment of indigestible carbohydrates, from many different sources, with varying characteristics, functionalities and physiological effects.

This event will take up the following challenges:

  • Defining fibre
  • Regulatory issues/ claims
  • Dietary value of different forms of fibre
  • Formulating fibre into foods
