TNO Symposium on Optimising Food and Fibre Composition for Enhancing Microbial and General Health

September 20, 2023 from 12:45 to 17:00
Organised by: TNO | Location: Naturalis

This symposium emphasizes the importance of beneficial synergistic effects of combinations of fibres and their interactions with other compounds. Moreover, we celebrate the end of 38 years at TNO of Jan-Willem van der Kamp.

Trends towards more plant-based foods and reduction of levels of sugars and fats may contribute to a higher intake of fibres. This symposium will present new insights and technologies for exploring and optimising synergistic effects and thereby contributing to personal and public health.
