Food & Function is delighted to be sponsoring the 18th Food Colloids Conference: Structure, dynamics and function (11-13 April 2022).
The conference aim is to gather leading international experts from academia and industry to share the latest research and developments in the field of food colloids.
The conference has a long history, starting in 1986 and has since been held at different locations throughout Europe.
Food of the future needs not only to be appealing and nutritious, but will also be required to provide health benefits. Furthermore, food needs to be sustainable throughout the production chain. A challenge is that formulated foods often are colloids that are both complex and polydisperse, both in relation to composition and structure, as well as in terms of changes with time. Clearly the study and understanding of such foods requires a combination of techniques and a new toolbox with unsurpassed spatial and time resolution. As a response to these needs unique large-scale research infrastructures, i.e. the synchrotron MAX IV and the neutron source ESS are being built up in Lund.
a. Colloids – Design of structures for functionality
b. Biomacromolecules – Molecular characteristics and interactions
c. Neutron & X-ray scattering techniques – Tools for understanding food materials
d. Interfaces and self-assembly – Dynamics or instability?
