The 2nd Oxford Function Food Conference was held at The Oxford Hotel from the 13th-14th November 2012. This year’s conference focused on functional foods and the role they play in helping to tackle obesity, diabetes and inflammation, and the 2-day programme included contributions from the UK, Europe, Canada and the US in the form of plenary lectures, symposium sessions and poster sessions.
Food & Function was delighted to be able to sponsor a poster prize for innovation at this year’s conference, which was awarded to Caroline Montelius from Lund University for her poster “Supplementation of thylakoids to a high carbohydrate meal decrease feelings of hunger, elevate CCK and prevent hypoglycaemia in overweight women“. Congratulations Caroline!
