IFST Food Science and Nutrition Group Webinar: Nutrient Density in Foods: Past Present and Future

Speaker Panel: Jenny Walton, Mike Adams and Eva Lewis Host: Kate Halliwell Following the successful debates on macro and micronutrients and, most recently, Lifestyle Choices, we are taking a look at factors which have, are and will influence the inherent nutrient density in our foods. A debate to gain an understanding of the variations in nutrient density depending on agronomy, growing and processing conditions. In this webinar you will learn about a number of parameters can influence the nutrients in our foods, including the following:

  • Farming and depletion of minerals in foods from the soil
  • Processing and better retention/ creation of vitamins in foods with new processing techniques
  • Enhancing nutrient content of foods through feed and growing conditions
  • Consumer attitudes
