Tuesday, 24 April, 2018 - 18:15 to 20:45
SCI, Belgrave Square, London, SW1X 8PS

Following the successful debates on the macronutrients Sugar, Fat, Protein and Fibre we move on to micronutrients and begin with Vitamins and Minerals.

Vitamins and Minerals are vital components of our diet. Because they are well researched, the majority of health claims allowed in Europe relate to this group of micronutrients. This will, once again, be an interactive event bringing together a panel of experts to explore various regulatory, health and food formulation issues related to vitamins and minerals in our diet.
