Meeting the needs of future generations
Pressure on producing a healthy food supply will meet numerous future challenges due to a rapidly growing population. In order to meet these challenges, foods will need to be more sustainable and more nutritious in order to maintain health for all populations regardless of economic status.
Food initially impacts health through their interaction with the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, an outstanding opportunity to make foods healthier is to maximize their ability to improve gut health and increase nutrient bioaccessibility so nutrients are more efficiently utilized from limited food resources. In addition, foods need to be produced from sustainable agricultural products and food availability needs to be increased by decreasing waste and converting food by products into value added food products all while maintaining quality and safety.
This conference will cover emerging knowledge and innovations that can improve the health and wellness properties of foods. Through a better understanding of how foods improve health and how novel innovations can naturally produce safe, great tasting foods while minimizing waste is the key to securing our future food supply.
