4th UK Hydrocolloids Symposium – From Food to Bioprocessing

The 4th UK Hydrocolloids Symposium is being held at the University of Leeds, UK on Thursday 12th of September 2019.

The theme of the symposium is “From Food to Bioprocessing” and aims to foster the exchange of ideas and recent advances from a variety of disciplines in which Hydrocolloids are key drivers. The research presented in this symposium will represent a cross section of work undertaken by researchers from foods and pharmaceuticals (encapsulation, delivery, oral processing and digestion), biomaterials (scaffolds, hydrogels, nanomaterials) and future applications of Hydrocolloids.

Our journal Food & Function will be sponsoring a prize for the best poster at the The 4th UK Hydrocolloids Symposium.

The registration deadline is 17.00 on Wednesday 4th of September.
