It has been a busy few days on the RSC Publishing stand at the IFT conference in New Orleans. Visitors to the stand could collect a free copy of Food & Function and browse our food science books – we also had a range of activities and events on the stand….
On Sunday we challenged delegates to test their taste buds with the “Chocolate Challenge”. Visitors to the stand tried US, UK and European chocolate and had to select their favourite – a fun way to highlight one of our popular food science titles “The Science of Chocolate”. The competition between the UK and European chocolate was close – the European chocolate came out on top in the end!
On Monday visitors to the stand joined us for cake to toast Food & Function as they chatted to Food & Function Editorial and Advisory Board members Eric Decker, Julian McClements and E. Allen Foegeding.
The Food & Function blog competition asking whether longevity foods exist and what they may be also stimulated some very interesting discussions at the stand. The blog competition is open until July 1st – upload your post today!
