The 8th International Symposium on the “Delivery of Functionality in Complex Food Systems” (DOF2019) was held at the Sheraton Porto Hotel Conference Center in Porto, Portugal, July 7-10th 2019.
DOF2019 tackled three main themes, including “Food Structures for Delivery of Functionality”, “Safety and efficacy of delivery systems” and “Healthy food design: is multi-functionality the right way forward?”
