IFFI Diner Meeting: Innovation
Allergens: finding a balance between sense and sensibility
In the privacy of the IFFI network, managers and professionals will get an update on the interaction between the human immune system and food as well as the sense and nonsense in the public perception of food allergies. Are processed foods to blame for the rise in allergies? And are clean label, organic and natural products of any help in turning the tide?
Can biochemistry and bionica offer immunity?
How can we use biochemistry and bionica principles to find innovative alternatives for allergens or to deactivate allergens? Participants are invited to exchange ideas on innovative solutions for both regulatory as well as public opinion issues with regard to allergens.
Innovation/R&D managers, market intelligence and marketing managers, business development and consumer insight managers, product development specialists, process and application technologists and colleagues from the food ingredients industry who are interested in food allergens a regulatory, R&D and marketing point of view.
