Welcome to the 1st Congress On Food Structure Design
The food industry is constantly challenged to meet consumer demands for new food products that are safe, convenient, affordable, pleasurable and healthy. An understanding of fundamental structure and function relationships of food components is a key to the design of new foods: ingredient formulation and production processes have a major role in commercial food product development, but their impact on food structure at different size scale is poorly understood. Moreover, the influence of structure and physical properties on nutritional and health-
The goal of the 1st Congress on Food Structure Design is to strengthen at academic and industrial levels the scientific understanding of product design and engineering and to stimulate and accelerate the development of innovative, complex and highly structured products and suitable production processes.
The main topic of the 1st edition of the Congress is therefore the design of health-
This conference is meant to gather an interdisciplinary team of scientists from different research areas (food engineering, biophysics, applied soft matter, food technology, applied human nutrition, creative design) in the frame of an integrated process & product design approach for creating innovative multiphase structured foods.
Sharing knowledge and technologies for healthy foods design among academic institutions and private enterprises for the purpose of advancing the frontiers of functional food products will be addressed.
The Congress will be developed on three directions of "Food structure design":
I. Engineering of structures for tailored delivery of health-
II. Process and product engineering for food properties generation/preservation/delivery
III. Sharing knowledge and technologies between academia and industry for healthy foods design
