The 5th Internation Conference on Food Structures, Digestion and Health Conference (FSDH2019) will take place from 1-3 October in Rotorua, New Zealand. It will be preceded by a pre-conference workshop on 30 September.
The FSDH2019 conference is the fifth in a series hosted by the Riddet Institute in New Zealand and CSIRO in Australia. It brings together food industry professionals and world leading scientists from diverse disciplines with a common interest in designing food structures focused on “Working with and like Nature” that delivers better nutrition and improves consumer’s wellbeing.
Conference sessions are organised as follows:
- Food structure design and soft matter physics – learning from nature
- Food structures, oral processing and consequences for sensory properties
- Designing food structures for optimal delivery of nutrients and bioactive compounds
- Physiological aspects of digestion and the role of the human microbiome
- New approaches to modelling human digestion and gastrointestinal function
- The Food-Gut-Brain connection
- Systems approaches to food structure design and the delivery of functionality
- Food structure and nutrition – opportunity for new food product development
- Food structure and nutrition – opportunity to redefine dietary guidelines
The conference will offer researchers and industry professionals the opportunity to network across disciplines, form research collaborations and partnerships, and develop joint research initiatives incorporating strategies of engineering sustainable food systems that promote human health and wellbeing for the coming decades.
