Food Antioxidants and Functional Ingredients - Shelf Life Extension, Nutrition and Health

13 November 2017 10:00 - 14 November 2017 16:00, London, United Kingdom


Introduction

Synopsis


Antioxidants are recognised as important components in human and animal nutrition. They also serve as functional ingredients in the food industry, for example, to reduce the oxidative deterioration of oils, fats and lipid based foods. Antioxidants are believed to protect cells and organs from oxidative stress and therefore act beneficially against a number of diseases.  Although often seen to exhibit antioxidant activity in vitro, it is unlikely that some bioactive components, such as polyphenols and other phytochemicals, retain those beneficial antioxidant properties when ingested. Indeed, they may act as pro-oxidants with resulting negative consequences. However, they do play an important role and understanding these food components is essential in recognising how they can best be exploited by the industry as processing aids and for improving nutritional value. Making optimal choices to maximise effects for their intended use is paramount in producing cost effective products.  Additionally, legislation surrounding this field raises some important challenges with regards to health claims substantiation and the use and marketing of antioxidant functional ingredients. 

The main theme of this international conference is of understanding antioxidants in terms of food processing, nutrition and health, NPD and impacts on shelf life including the challenges and strategies for a new generation of antioxidant phytochemicals.

Attendees


The conference will be of interest to producers and users of food antioxidants, nutritionists, health authorities, food scientists, phytochemicals researchers, supplement manufacturers and retailers.
